The collection of taxes, including Corporation Tax, is not monitored by the enterprise development agencies under the aegis of my Department. All issues in relation to Corporation Tax are a matter for the Revenue Commissioners.
The employment figures available to my Department are those in respect of firms assisted by the State Development agencies - IDA Ireland, Enterprise Ireland and the County Enterprise Boards (CEB's), which come under the aegis of my Department. Agency employment figures are compiled in the Forfás Annual Employment Survey, the most up to date of which details figures for jobs supported until end 2009. As the information is compiled on an annualised basis, the figures in respect of 2010 will not be available until 2011. Details of the agency figures are set out in the following tabular statement.
Figures relating to net jobs existing in the CEB supported micro-enterprises are compiled through the completion of an annual CEB Employment Survey and details are set out in the following tabular statement. Figures in respect of 2010 will not be available until early in 2011.
