I am advised by Revenue that its primary method of classifying businesses is the European standard NACE code.

I am further advised that the majority of the businesses referred to by the Deputy are included in the ‘financial and insurance activities’ NACE sector. The tax paid by businesses in this sector is available at the following link: .

This link provides the following information.

The Deputy may also wish to note the research paper published on the Revenue website in respect of Corporation Tax receipts in 2018, which is available at link: . This paper includes information on payments from Section 110 companies (Table 16) and withholding tax in respect of Irish Real Estate Funds (Table 18).
