Appleby denies cancelling TAX3 meeting

MEP claimed law firm backed out last minute

An Island-based law firm insists it didn't cancel a meeting with the European Parliament delegation currently visiting the Island.

The TAX3 committee is holding talks with a number of parties today, but Matt Carthy MEP claimed on Twitter that Appleby had pulled out of a scheduled meeting last minute.

The company has told Manx Radio this wasn't the case, as it declined the committee's request for an appointment 15 days prior to their visit.

The committee is looking at how different jurisdictions deal with tax evasion and avoidance.
