International Companies Operating in Ireland

The Irish corporate tax regime incentivises foreign companies to relocate here. Ireland’s tax treaty network make it attractive for overseas companies to establish a foreign holding or trading company in Ireland. In addition, the Irish corporate tax rate can be lowered through careful tax planning.

  • optimal structure for the Irish operation, tax residency and trading status.
  • financing of the operation.
  • comprehensive value added tax (VAT) advice.
  • tax efficient ways to repatriate profits to the home country.
  • accessing attractive research and development (R&D) tax incentives.
  • the holding company capital gains tax (CGT) exemption.
  • the corporation tax exemption for "start up" companies.
