Starting a company in Ireland is a great way to expand sales to Europe and reach out to customers from around the European Union. But what if you want to start an Irish company when the only relationship to the EU you have is knowing its geographical position? Don’t worry about it! Company set up in Ireland is also available to non-EU and European Economic Area (EEA) Residents. If only of course they know and fulfil all the legal requirements to incorporate a business in Ireland. A company secretary is exactly one of these.

Who is Company Secretary for Irish Ltd

In Ireland, it is a legal requirement for every local company to have a secretary. Every person of legal age can be appointed as a company secretary, regardless of their qualification. Nevertheless, because a secretary role is associated with legal and statuary duties, we suggest appointing a person familiar with this field.  So, a company secretary in Ireland is a company officer who carries out the legal, statuary company duties as well as duties assigned by company directors to help them ensure that the requirements of the Companies Act 2014 are complied with by the company. 

Details of a company secretary should be notified to CRO in Form B10. They are publicly visible and can be found whenever a person is searching for your company.

Company Secretary Office Duties

A company secretary for Irish Ltd is an investment that matters a lot to your business’ success in the long run. This is mainly due to the range of responsibilities assigned to the secretary. These include the following

  • execution of a company’s legal documents;
  • maintenance of the statutory registers and minute books;
  • acting as principal administration officer;
  • communication with shareholders;
  • convening meetings of members;
  • ensuring that statuary forms are completed and filed with CRO in a timely manner;
  • custody and use of the company seal and more.

Even though a role of a company secretary in Irish Ltd covers a vast range of duties, an individual does not require any formal preparation to be qualified as a secretary. It’s a common practice for business owners to appoint for this role any trustable person.

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.
