FDI, or Foreign Direct Investment is another area of Ireland’s economy that will see some positive opportunities during this time. With the UK’s decision to leave the EU its share of new FDI is now in decline. This in turn creates an opportunity for Ireland that cannot be overlooked. The UK has been the favourite investment base for foreign investors in the EU but in the wake of Brexit, Ireland is looking more and more attractive due to its low corporate tax rate of 12.5% and the fact that is the only EU country where English is the primary language. Also the Irish tax regime is open and transparent and complies fully with OECD guidelines and EU competition law. Despite the UK’s intention to cut their corporate tax rate to 15%, it will be possible to secure a greater share of foreign direct investment as Ireland is about to become the only native English-speaking country in the EU.Financial services headquarter operations may be moved from the UK to another it may be possible to strengthen our trade with the UK as new trading terms will require to be negotiated with the strength of being a member of the EU.Whilst it is difficult to take a benefit from a friend’s loss, Ireland must have no issues about taking every opportunity arising in the wake of the Brexit fallout. In our opinion change brings with it opportunity.
