Company Formation Process: Non Resident

Idea To Reality

The company formation process for non residents is no different to the basic company formation process, aside from some additional requirements. Company registration in Ireland may seem like a daunting endeavor, especially for those who are non residents and looking to set up outside of Ireland. We can assure that the process can be a smooth and easy one when managed correctly. In recent years Ireland has become a hub for new foreign business ventures due to low tax rates, skilled workforce and access to European markets. Here at Irish Formations we are experts on how to create a company in Ireland. We offer complete remote set up for those looking to register a company in Ireland.

Our goal is to guide our clients so that their incorporation is done as accurately, efficiently and as quickly as possible. Not only do we provide incorporation services but we also keep our clients informed about their duties post incorporation and offer all the services to help them out. For non -residents it may be that little bit more lengthy as additional obligations are required. Not to worry, we are here to guide you through all of it. If you have a business start up idea and have been thinking about taking the leap into Irish company ownership then look no further. Our guide below will talk you through the company formation process for non residents when you incorporate with Irish Formations.

3. Section 137 Bond Application

Once you have your discussion with our Managing Director he will be able to talk you through the ins and outs of obtaining your bond and all questions surrounding it. Obtaining this is necessary before initiating the incorporation process. We will coordinate with the insurance company to secure it and will need a few signatures from you This usually takes around 1 – 2 weeks depending on processing times.

4. Checking Documents

The first step on our end will be to check over all your documents and see that everything is in order. A member of the support team will liaise back and forth with you to ensure all details are correct. The company name will then be sent off to the CRO (Companies Registration Office) for checking.  This generally takes about 5-6 working days but can vary in time depending on the CRO processing times. In the meantime while you are waiting for this we will email you requesting your trading address and confirmation of your PPS number. If you are an Irish citizen you will have a PPS number. For anyone else you will have to complete the VIF application. If needs be, we will send it to you at this point. This will have to be signed and stamped by a public notary. This number is now a requirement for all company directors.

5. A1 and Constitution

Once the name check comes back and all information seems to be accurate then we submit everything to CORE. They will then generate the A1 Report and A1 Subscriber and we can generate the constitution for your company.  These will be sent to you for signing.

6. Certified Identification and AML Check

In line with the laws surrounding AML policies created by the department of justice, we must uphold our due diligence by completing AML risk assessment. Our support team will provide you with this short assessment needing just some basic information as well as certified passport identification and proof of address. The proof of address must be dated within the last 3 months and must match the address provided. We will then cross check everything and once everything seems in order we can then upload your final submission to CORE and await your official incorporation.

7. Certificate of incorporation

After the CRO receives all documentation and is happy to move forward, they will then issue your certificate of incorporation. It will be emailed to us. We will then send you your notification of incorporation email along with the additional RBO/Tax emails if these were chosen in your pack. This now means you are officially incorporated!

8. Receive Your Official Documents

After you receive this email our support team will then start generating your documents. These will all generate into one pack and include a cover letter, first meetings minutes, register of directors and secretaries, share certificates, 2 copies of the company constitution, and company seal and register (if included in chosen pack). This will be posted as a file on your Irish Formations account. Shortly after this you will receive your documents by post.
