The number of directors you need to incorporate in Ireland: a limited company of any type requires two directors (you need to have two people to be appointed as your private company directors; corporate directors do not acceptable there), at least one of them needs to live within the European Economic Area (EEA) - this area includes the EU, as well as Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein. There is, however, an exemption against this rule, known as the Section 43 Non-EEA Resident Directors Bond. Where neither director lives within the EEA (i.e. is non-EEA), a bond must be taken out to cover the sum of €25,394.76 risks insurance.

The surety under this bond must be one of the following: a bank, building society, credit institution, or insurance company with the legal presence in Republic of Ireland. These are stipulated in law. If you are locating outside of the European Union and do not have a director, who is the EU resident, we can help you to issue a non-resident director bond, which can costs you about £1,900, or we can provide you a nominee director, who is the resident of Republic of Ireland, or a nominee administrator, who is the UK resident, to avoid the requirements to issue the insurance bond.

Coddan is able to assist you with proceeding with this legal bond, for the sum of £1,900 if you do not wish to appoint one of our nominee directors.

Dublin is one of the largest financial centres in the world, and the Republic of Ireland rewards foreign investors by providing lowest corporate tax rates in the world and other business registration advantages that can be very lucrative.

In addition to tax benefits, Irish law itself is an attractive and useful authority, as it is based in Common Law, unlike many other countries where the legal system is based in Civil Law. Amongst other things, Common Law has particular implications on the principle freedom of contract, essentially enabling the parties to a contract to write their own terms and conditions, rather than them already being prescribed by law.

How many directors must the Irish company has?

A minimum of two directors are required to register a private company limited by shares, corporate directors are not allowed. A director can be of any nationality. One of the private company directors must be resident in Ireland, UK or in EU, in the absence of a resident director; a secure bond must be lodged. A resident director person is one who is present in the South of Ireland for an aggregate period of 183 days or more each year or the previous year.
