Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
have been artificially inflated in the past 2 years by a temporary provision which taxed at a much lower rate repatriated profits. A number of US corporates have taken advantage of this clause to bring back significant amounts of money form their foreign subsidiaries - even taxed at the lower rate, this has boosted corporate tax massively.

This will not be repeated in future years.
