EU Digital Tax Disharmony, 100% Club Launches, Ryanair Sacking - Irish Times Podcast

This week: Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe will be happy with the outcome of Tuesday’s Ecofin meeting, which saw his German counterpart suggest a two year delay on the introduction of a digital sales tax and the French propose a compromise, or to borrow a Brexit term, a backstop measure. Europe editor Patrick Smyth and Olivia Buckley of the Irish Tax Institute join Ciaran to discuss how the tax will work and why Ireland is so opposed to it. Plus: The 100% Club launched on the fringes of the European Climate Innovation Summit in Dublin this week, aimed at challenging firms to reveal annually the full extent of their greenhouse gas emissions. Kevin O’Sullivan has the details. But first: Peter Hamilton has a roundup of some of the week’s other stories, including Ryanair’s sacking of six members of staff over a viral photograph, good news for Ikea in Ireland and Sharon Donnery beaten by an Italian economist for a top ECB banking job.
