Steps to Incorporate

The first step to incorporate is we check the availability of your proposed company name.

Company Name

This is the name of your business. There are some restrictions, the main one being that it must be unique.

Company Registered Office

This is the registered address of your company in Ireland where all official documents are served. This does not have to be your trading address, residential addresses in Ireland are permitted.

Company Directors

Irish companies require the first name, family name, residential address, date of birth, nationality, occupation and any other directorships of each director, whom must be over the age of 18. It is required that one director be a permanent resident in the EU. Where there is no director resident in the EU a Non Resident Director Bond can be put in place.

Company Secretary

Irish companies are required to have a Company Secretary who has the legal duty of filing all required documents and accounts. We can be your Company Secretary.

Irish PPS number

The Irish Registry have very introduced a new requirement for all Directors and Shareholders to obtain an “Identified Person Number” – this will be required for the submission of electronic filings, such as the Register of Beneficial Owners or an Annual Return.

Only one IPN is required in respect of each director. Once this has been processed successfully the Identified Person Number is issued by the Registrar, that number can be used for making future filings for that person.
