Pearse Trust is the leading company formation specialist in the Irish market.

The main provisions of the legislation which govern the formation of companies in Republic of Ireland are:

  • All Irish companies should have two directors, one of whom, is a resident in a member state of the EEA. The Registrar of Companies can issue exemptions, under particular circumstances
  • A company’s registered office has to be within the Republic
  • Audited statutory accounts have to be presented to shareholders within nine months of year end
  • Private companies are required to have their annual accounts audited, but exemptions can apply
  • Irish companies can be liquidated by seeking a voluntary dissolution or through either a creditors’ or members' liquidation
