Facebook to cease channeling ad revenue via Ireland following tax outcry

Facebook

The move will apply to all countries in which Facebook now has an office to support sales to advertisers, Facebook's Chief Financial Officer Dave Wehner said in a statement.

Currently, advertising revenue supported by Facebook's local teams are recorded by its worldwide headquarters in Dublin, Ireland.

For years, Facebook has legally minimised taxes by funnelling non-US income to the Republic of Ireland, a jurisdiction with only 12.5 per cent corporation tax.

Facebook a year ago diverted more than €12 billion of global revenues to Ireland, attracting the ire of governments in Europe and further afield who argue its existing strategy deprives them of tax.

The changes will be implemented throughout 2018, with a view to them being completed by the first half of 2019. Facebook was careful to note that the new system would only apply in places where it already has a local office, and "this is a large undertaking that will require significant resources to implement around the world".

Advertisements will be sold and recorded by "local teams" - effectively meaning that the company will pay tax in the country where the ads are sold.
