Ireland has been a popular place for company registration for many years, paricularly as Ireland has one of the lowest corporate tax rates in Europe, and more recently because of Ireland's continuing membership of the European Union.
There are several types of companies that can be incorporated in Ireland. By far the most frequently used is a Private Company Limited by Shares. This type of company is more usually known as a Limited Company.
An Irish Limited Company can be used for any commercial purpose. Irish Limited Companies are also used as holding companies and can be trading or non-trading. It is possible to incorporate a Private Limited Company within three working days. The company can be registered with just one director. Other directors are optional, however at least one of the directors must be an EU resident. We can provide a person to fulfil this role.
The company must also have a registered office within Ireland. This is the official address of the company, it does not have to be a trading address, and the company does not have to maintain a presence at the address. We will provide you with an address to use as your registered office.
