Irish public company limited by shares formation & share capital: the Republic of Ireland is widely considered one of the best places in the world to register a business. It's important to understand the different structures, though, to ensure you don't make an expensive mistake when you register public company in Ireland. Share capital is a particularly important aspect of doing business and we can help at every step.
We offer free consultation and can help you with the registration of a public company in Ireland with full online PLC company start-up. So you can hit the ground running and register a public company within days in most cases. A public company limited by share capital, rather than guarantees, must have a minimum issued share capital of €38,092.14, although just 25% of this must be paid before the company can start trading.
The liability of the members, of which there must be at least seven, is then limited to the amount unpaid on their shares. This can be a solid option to limit the liability of the directors in the event that the company is wound up at any point.
Shares can be offered on the stock exchange and freely transferred, which gives you far more options when it comes to raising capital. It is generally easier to access finance from banks with a PLC, too, as even in a tough economy the major institutions tend to look more kindly on a listed company. The advantages of a PLC don't stop there, as the brand awareness offered by a stock exchange listing can form a large part of your marketing effort.
