It is assumed the Deputy is referring to the number of companies that filed corporation tax returns for the years outlined who had Net Trading Income (before deductions and charges) in excess of the amounts specified in the question. I am informed by the Revenue Commissioners that the relevant figures are as contained in the Table CTS 1 of the Statistical Reports published annually by the Commissioners and can be found on the Revenue website at www.revenue.ie .

The latest year for which information is available from that source is for 2010 which is contained in the 2011 report.

The corresponding information for 2011 is available and will be included in the 2012 report on the website as soon as possible. Data for the year 2012 is not yet available.

Because of the Revenue Commissioners’ obligation to observe confidentiality in relation to the taxation affairs of individual taxpayers and small groups of taxpayers, a breakdown by the bands requested by the Deputy is not provided in relation to incomes exceeding €10 million due to the relatively small numbers of companies with incomes in excess of that level.

The following table shows the number of companies that filed corporation tax returns with Net Trading Income (before deductions and charges) in excess of €1million, €5 million and €10 million for the years 2006 – 2011:
