Frequently Asked Questions

Setting up a company in Ireland carries plenty of benefits. These are the smooth process of annual returns submission, low Ireland corporate tax rate (lowest in the EU), official documentation in English, access to the European market, the brilliant reputation of Ireland as a business-friendly country, availability of progressive and educated workforce.

It takes just a few hours to fill in and prepare necessary company documents and forms. Once documents are submitted to the CRO, it usually takes 3-5 days to issue a company registration number. Due to the impact of Covid-19, the Companies Registration Office may process applications for up to 2 weeks.

Yes, there is no need to physically come to Ireland to set up a company. Certainly, you are more than welcome to visit the country. It’s beautiful! Forms are uploaded digitally using scanned pdf files of original signatures. Please note, CRO does not accept digital signatures done by typing a name or drawing a signature.

A company is a legal entity separate and distinct from those who own or run it. In order to incorporate a company a Form A1 shall be filled in and submitted together with a Constitution to the Registrar of Companies with scanned signed originals. Anyone can register a company themselves. However, it is advised to use a professional to ensure compliance with the Companies Act 2014. Each company must have a director and a secretary, must carry business in the state and have a registered office address in Ireland.

Limited company is a separate entity from a legal person. Ltd companies are limited by shares. If business is liquidated, the company’s liabilities are treated separately to those of its shareholders and directors, in a way, protecting them from debt and financial losses of the business itself. Partnerships, on the other hand, have limited and unlimited partners who are treated as legal persons. Unlimited partners are responsible for all debt and liabilities accrued by the business.

A company can be closed or wound up by a process called Voluntary Strike-Off. This is a quick and easy way to dissolve the company without any consequences for the founders and directors. Both trading and non-trading companies can be closed. The main criteria for eligibility would be no debts and no assets above €150. If this condition is not met, the company shall be liquidated or will be struck off the register by CRO by a process called Involuntary Strike Off with possibility of fine.
