What will be the outcome of Ireland's refusal to fall into line with the 130 nations proposing a new tax treaty to extract more tax from the large multinational corporations that presenty shift profits to the low-tax environment of the Emerald Isle?

Do these gummints (and of them) have any real, sane, advisers on Internet e-commerce?

Turnover tax on all transactions/income generated in a country or block all of the that companys domains easy,
of course this seems too simple and even worse could be effective.

eg blacklist all traffic affiliated with google facebook etc :-)

Questions. A 'lead' onwards from Goldedge.

There are many on this forum who (I speculate) would have a higher individual IQ than those collectively advising the gummints on how to deal with the sort of tax evasion that this law is attempting to redress. The same 'many on this forum' seem to be of the view that the gummints are wasting their time.

1) Despite perhaps being lawful, do you consider it morally and ethically appropriate that Internet tech terrorists like gooble, et al can [largely] evade income taxes in a country where their income is earned.

2) If the answer to (1) is no; how would you remedy the income tax evasion?

So now taxing income is a communist only thing?? :-)

GST is effectively a turnover tax that is levied on all transactions in NZ
the effect is the same except that world governments would be applying it to
international companies transactions.

IE they could not dodge it which would make a change :-)

Most transactions.
Wages, financial transactions, residential rents, export payments rec'd - there are more than one or two exemptions.
