Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
S you argue that Ireland - one of the richest countries in the union - should get a special dispensation to a low corporation tax policy? Why?

And that is not a long term plan anyway: Slovakia already imitated you Ireland on the corporation tax rate.

And of course in most countries there are thinks like commercial rates. In Germany e. g. you would add the corporation tax, solidarity surcharge and local corporation tax together and get a tax rate of 29-31%.

So the argument that commercial rates are a special Irish burden on business is not that persuasive.
