Just following corporate policies

Although she may have been physically in Oz - all child care operations took place in Ireland by her Irish subsidiary and so she should recieve Irish benefits.

Re: Indeed

i think that she is related to Anna Logue a very curvaceous creature much loved by technical people especially her charming waves.

She was a bit up and down with her sinuses, from what I heard.

I agree. Good for the goose, good for the gander, right?

Oh wait, she didn't incorporate. That's where she went wrong.

I trust she didn't also claim kenneling for her pet; Cat A Logue.

Re: Just following corporate policies

Crap, she was surely paid allowances for child care while she was away, if not what sort of sh**s are MS. Anyway, where was the report that her child care was in Ireland, they may have been with family. Chilrens alliowance is a controversial payment, there is no assessment of need, everyone who has kids gets it, regardless of income, and it is non taxable.

Her case is typical of a basic level of dishonesty in Ireland. There is still a culture which treats the government as the enemy, so ripping it off is ok.

Either she has 5.5 kids

Or the irish child benefit is a lot better than ours in england.

Slow news cycle?

There must be hordes of Microsoft and Google employees getting traffic tickets or being caught out by the IRS. You'll never run out of stuff to cover.

Must be why companies with bases in Ireland pay hardly any tax.
