The EU does not have the competence under the treaties to make Ireland abandon its corporation tax set up.
A new treaty would have to be agreed by all EU states and Ireland would certainly reject any such move.

They're moving to water down the need for Qualified Majority which in itself is a watering down of the position you state.

Hence the language of Europhile Hayes.

Macron is moving to broaden remits to include Taxation for Superstate Decisions, Merkel & Junker are supporting this.

It doesn’t matter what any EU nation state leader does because they must obtain a unaminous agreement to change taxation policy from all member states.
This would mean a new treaty , one that requires consent from all member states.
There is no other way to do this.

Germany and France can indeed jointly harmonize their tax regimes by common agreement.
But they can not affect Ireland’s tax regime under current legal EU provisions.
Those provisions on taxation policy being the sole prerogative of each member state can not be changed without a new treaty.
That’s my understanding of the position.

A New Treaty like Nice 2 & Lisbon 2?

That's why Hayes is running away...

They are constantly trying to undermine their own Checks & Balances, of course there is a way, you just Bully them, Vote to abandon QMV & / or Unanimity or we'll wipe you out, Project Fear...

Macron urges EU-wide corporate tax band by 2020
It doesn’t matter what that ignorant little French shit says.
The EU functions under laws and treaties that are binding on all member states.

His threats are meaningless and designed to bully.
