DUBLIN (Reuters) – Ireland expects to receive a revised text on a global corporate tax overhaul on Thursday after which it will announce whether or not it will sign up to the deal, Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe said.

“Last night I had further engagement with the European Commission and the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development),” Donohoe told reporters.

“I am expecting a revised agreement today. The government will evaluate that text and my view on it and be in a position to make our view clear this evening.”
