A Government Budgetary Oversight Committee has called for better models for forecasting corporation tax receipts and Ireland's economic exposure to Brexit.
It comes as the Oireachtas releases its Post-Budget 2019 report today.
Committee Chairman, Colm Brophy TD, said: “The Committee seeks to make Ireland’s budget-making process more transparent, inclusive and subject to greater parliamentary scrutiny.
“We hope that all of our recommendations published today are received positively by the relevant departments and agencies.”
Deputy Brophy said: “We hope these recommendations can be examined and implemented alongside early and detailed engagement with the Committee as 2019 progresses.
“Ireland must do all it can to make its medium-term forecasting more accurate, detailed and insightful, particularly in relation to corporation tax receipts and health spending overruns.
"As a nation, we must keep an especially close watch on mid-year spending adjustments given the possibility that Brexit, with all its uncertainties, could be reality by then.”
