When you are carrying out transactions with companies and organisations in a country that is not your own, processing the paperwork can be a headache, particularly if you don’t have a presence in that country. The good news is that it is possible to have an address in Ireland without having an office in the country. You can hire a process agent who will supply you with an Irish address that you can use to correspond with organisations that you’re dealing with. Organisations can send their documentation to that address, so it makes it much easier for you to correspond with organisations you’re dealing within Ireland.
A process agent’s role is straightforward. They provide an Irish address that you can use in the paperwork you draw up. A process agent simply accepts documents on your behalf, at the address they provide you. Process agents will accept all documents from companies that pertain to transactions and agreements including legal, financial and taxation matters.
So, How Does The Process Work?
It’s quite simple. You ask companies you are transacting with to send relevant documentation to the Irish address you receive from the process agent. You can then respond to the documentation using this address and quote the address on any documentation you draw up. Process agents receive documentation relating to court proceedings, arbitration, contracts and financial transactions, amongst others. Then when documentation comes to that address, the process agent will notify you via post, fax, courier or email, depending on your preferred method of communication.

Why Is A Process Agent Necessary?
If you use an address provided by a process agent for your Irish transactions, you will save a lot of time and hassle. Without an address within the country where you are doing business, the process of entering into an agreement would be time-consuming and full of obstacles. You will receive your documents more quickly and the process of implementing the transaction will be a lot smoother – no hanging around or delays. It is also a lot more cost-effective to set up an Irish address with a process agent than to try and set up an office in Ireland yourself.
