Ireland Company Incorporation Services

Many view Ireland as the ideal gateway to access the mega European Union and the world market. Separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel, Ireland is one of the European nations that has a modern economy, focusing on services, high-tech industries, trade and investment.

Companies like IBM, PayPal and Ericsson have been based in Ireland for many years, and are among the many companies who have continued to invest in Ireland. Other than the strong economy and good investment climate in Ireland, the ease of doing business in this country is one of the most-valued reasons.

As we can see, there are lots of advantages and benefits to setup a company in Ireland, instead of overseas marketing. Before we get into the procedures of company incorporation, you may want to know what types of Irish company available.  A Private Limited Company is the most common form of Irish company incorporation for people wishing to a start business in Ireland.
