Executive Summary: Due to its English language, low corporate tax rate and business-friendly government, Ireland has become a favoured destination for foreign, particularly American, companies entering the EU marketplace. In the Internet sector it has near complete domination of incoming businesses. Since the economic downturn and its forced bail-out, Ireland has resisted EU attacks on its tax rate and is doing what is necessary to claw its way back to financial health. Individual tax rates are moderately high and the government has chipped away at concessions. With its common law heritage, Ireland remains the best place to start a European business for transatlantic companies.
