Ireland is one of a handful of hold-outs.

The Finance Minister says he still can’t sign up to a deal to raise the minimum global corporate tax rate to 15 per cent.

But he stopped short of giving a commitment not to raise Ireland’s 12.5 per cent rate.

Over 130 countries have agreed to reform corporate tax, with Ireland being one of just a few holdouts.

Paschal Donohoe says the talks haven't finished yet.
