  • Taxation of corporate debt in Ireland versus the UK

    While the banking crisis in Ireland has constricted traditional lines of credit, it has also created opportunities for financial institutions with healthier balance sheets to finance the many businesses based in Ireland with strong fundamentals. Understanding the tax implications for the Irish borrower is a key consideration in the lending process. John Gulliver and David Burke of Mason Hayes & Curran examine the tax treatment of corporate debt for Irish borrowers, comparing and contrasting this by way of illustration with the tax treatment for UK borrowers.
