Ireland: Matheson Hosts Women In Tax In Ireland Event
Last Updated: 31 May 2016

On 19 May 2016, Matheson hosted Women in Tax in Ireland ("WiTii") at our offices.  WiTii is a group which hosts events to encourage networking and the sharing of knowledge for women working in tax. 

Lorna Gallagher, the newly appointed Appeal Commissioner, Cora O'Brien, Policy Director with the Irish Tax Institute and Grainne Clohessy, Senior Counsel led the discussion Tax Disputes in Ireland - the Changing Environment with Carron McKinney, Senior International Tax Manager with Hewlett Packard Enterprise, acting as Chairperson. 

The panel discussed the new tax appeals process which became effective on 21 March 2016.  The establishment of the new Tax Appeals Commission earlier this year intends to enhance Ireland's existing appeals system and provide an independent and transparent system for dealing with tax appeals. 

During the discussion Commissioner Gallagher outlined some of the procedural aspects of the new system focussing on some of the key differences compared to the old system.  Cora O'Brien, who had been heavily involved in the consultation process, highlighted some of the lessons learnt from that process and the benefits of engaging consistently on tax policy matters.  Grainne Clohessy, who frequently acts for taxpayers and Revenue in Irish tax disputes, provided valuable insights into the practical aspects of tax disputes.
 
The event also provided an excellent networking opportunity for the attendees all of whom work in tax in Ireland. 

Matheson's tax controversy practice advises taxpayers on a broad range of matters from tax authority information requests, advance pricing agreements, correlative relief claims and tax audits to litigation and settlement of tax disputes.  Matheson has acted in Irish tax cases at all levels, including the Court of Justice of the European Union.  We are currently advising many taxpayers on the transition to the new tax appeals system.
