Private company formation in Éire online: once you've decided what your Irish business is going to do, as in the services and products you'll offer, you need to decide upon a business name registration and make sure there isn't a similar firm already registered with ROI Companies Registrar that could affect your business name registration choice. It's better to do this before you've invested time, money and your emotional involvement into a brand identity that then has to go in the bin.
With a business name fixed and registered, you have to decide on the business structure. This isn't as simple as it may seem and there may be a structure you are simply not aware of that fits your business needs and provides advantages you may not know about. For instance, most people start out as a sole trader or register a private company, and both can be highly effective ways to structure your business.
A limited company registration in Republic of Ireland is a tried-and-trusted method that protects your personal assets in case the business fails, can provide dividend payouts to reduce your tax payments and more.
But the business world evolves constantly and now many companies big and small are taking advantage of limited companies registration in Dublin, and other ways to form a business that protects their assets, their identity and their capital. You can even register a company in Dublin, which might be the best way to streamline your tax affairs from the start.

An annual return must be filed with the Registrar of Companies, together with the appropriate fee. In compliance with the provisions of the Companies Act, the Registrar of Companies may strike off a private company for failing to file an annual return in respect of any one-year off the index. The first annual return date in the case of a newly registered private limited company will be six months from the date of registration. Call us to discuss your needs and see how we can help.
