Ceist:

402. Deputy Sean Fleming asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform if all State bodies under the aegis of his Department have furnished a report confirming the State body has complied with its obligations under tax law for 2015 and 2016 as required under the code of practice for the governance of State bodies; the action which was taken regarding those bodies that did not submit such requests; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

The Code of Practice for the Governance of State Bodies applies to the Regulator of the National Lottery. The Regulator has furnished a report confirming that he complied with his  obligations under tax law for 2015. The Regulator has complied with his obligations under tax law for 2016 and this will be formally confirmed following completion of the audit of the Regulator’s accounts for 2016. 

 The Institute of Public Administration and the Economic and Social Research Institute are not State bodies.  However, as they receive funds from the Department, some aspects of the Code of Practice for the Governance of State Bodies apply to them. Both organisations complied with their obligations under tax law for 2015.  The 2016 position will be formally confirmed following their respective Annual General Meetings which are scheduled to take place shortly.
