Written answers (Question to Finance)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 181 and 182 together.

I am informed by Revenue that the net Corporation Tax receipts from the mining and utilities sector overall for the calendar year 2017 was in the region of €45.03 million. Receipts for earlier years are available at: https://www.revenue.ie/en/corporate/information-about-revenue/statistics/receipts/receipts-taxhead.aspx.

Due to Revenue’s obligation to protect the confidentiality of taxpayer information, it is not possible to itemise the contribution from individual gas fields or companies.
