The Group of Seven finance ministers have committed to a deal that would see a minimum global corporate tax rate of at least 15 per cent. US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said it would mean an end to what she referred to as a "race to the bottom on global taxation", while Facebook has stated that it expects to pay more tax in more countries as a result of the deal. German finance minister Olaf Scholz claimed the deal was "bad news for tax havens around the world", but Irish finance minister Paschal Donohoe said any global deal needs to take small nations into account; Ireland has a corporate tax rate of just 12.5 per cent.
