Advantages of Forming a
Company in Ireland, Republic

Ireland is a very suitable jurisdiction for companies to be based whilst acting in commercial transactions.

Ireland has an excellent image as a reputable corporate domicile. Irish registered companies are an attractive proposition to foreign investors for international tax planning purposes.

Irish company formation should be given serious consideration for foreign businesspeople seeking a more tax efficient corporate tax base. 

Many of the world’s most successful companies have chosen Ireland as a destination for their business because of the country’s pro-business environment. This includes leading technology companies such as Google and Facebook and leading pharmaceutical companies such as Actavis and Abbott. These and over 1,000 other multinational companies have done their research and decided that Ireland was the best destination to help grow their businesses.

Ireland
A base for your international operations

The 2008-2012 Business Environment Ranking of the Economist Intelligence Unit placed Ireland 11th globally out of 82 countries, naming it as one of the most attractive business locations in the world. Furthermore, Forbes 2011 named Ireland as the best country in Europe in which to do business.

The recent Business Environment Ranking of the Economist Intelligence Unit placed Ireland 11th globally out of 82 countries, naming it as one of the most attractive business locations in the world. A politically stable country and respected regulatory regime.

The World Bank’s “Doing business” Report rates Ireland as the easiest place in the European Union (EU) to start a business and as having the most business-friendly tax regime of any country in Europe or the Americas.

Economy

Ireland is a member of the Eurozone which has been described as the largest and most affluent economy in the world according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Ireland itself has a small yet highly globalised economy. Last year, Ireland had the fastest growing economy in Europe and is currently set to be the fastest growing economy again in 2015 and 2016.

Why do so many multinational corporations have international headquarters in Ireland?
  • Ireland is a member of the European Union and the European Economic Area (the “Euro Zone”) which allows for easy trade of services and products throughout the EU, as well as other supports available from agencies supporting businesses in the area.
  • An ‘effective’ rate of Zero for foreign dividends (12.5% tax rate on certain qualifying foreign dividends with flexible onshore pooling of foreign tax credits).
  • One of the best holding company regimes in the world. You may also qualify for tax incentives for holding/headquarter companies and benefit from the Network of Double Tax Treaties that reduce withholding taxes.
  • An Intellectual Property regime which allows a tax write off for widely defined IP acquisitions.
  • A very attractive Holding Company regime which includes participation exemption for gains on disposals of most shares.
  • Government Policies in Ireland favour foreign investment, including R&D activities through IDA Ireland, Shannon Development and Enterprise Ireland.
  • Ireland ranks highly year after year in comparisons for countries that are favourable to start up a business.
  • The Irish are known throughout the world to be highly skilled in technology and service roles and offer businesses here a great workforce to hire from.

Google is using a network of Irish companies to save millions in taxes. Filings that Google lodged with the US regulatory authorities indicate the multinational’s effective tax rate has dropped from 39 per cent to 31 per cent, indicating it is saving approximately €100 million a year in taxes via its Irish business.
