Your Essential Questions Answered


Should I outsource my registered office?

Outsourcing your registered office is a very good idea if you do not want it to be publicly available on the Companies Registrations Office.

Irish Formations will process and scan any post that comes in and get it emailed out to you same day. An annual charge of €240.00+VAT applies to the registered office or you can take it weekly for €40.00+VAT per month.


Do I need a company Secretary?

Yes. This is a legal requirement under the companies act 2014. . We can appoint a Nominee Secretary for €240.00 per year. The Secretary is responsible for ensuring the compliance of the company and that filings are made on time to the CRO and to Revenue. You can also appoint your own Secretary.


Do I need a Non-Resident Bond?

If you do not have a Director living in the Economic Area, you will require a Section 137 Bond for your business. The premium for the bond is paid every 2 years. The initial bond is paid for at the point of incorporation. The European Economic Area is made up of the 28 member states of the EU, (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, & Sweden plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.

you will need two addresses for incorporation. The addresses needed to complete the A1 form and Tax registration form. Therefore, you will need a registered office address and you will also need a trading address or a central point of administration.

What Our Customers Are Saying

“I hate paperwork and for that reason, the company formation process gives me the heebie jeebies! Irish Formations were incredibly patient and helpful in breaking down the work flow needed to get the job done. With good humour and grace they hunted me down for the inputs I needed to make, and then seamlessly delivered on the project.I can’t imagine ever setting up a company with anyone else – there can be no better testament to their approach.”
