This type of company can also be known as a single or multi member private company limited by shares and is owned by its shareholder. The company has limited liability and the shareholders’ liability, should the company fail, it is limited to the amount, if any, remaining unpaid on the shares held by them.

A company is a separate legal entity and, therefore, is separate and distinct from those who run it. Only the company can be sued for its obligations and can sue to enforce its rights.

COMPANY SEAL – €49.99

Company Seal is an official seal used by a company. It is a device with two opposite metal plates on which the name of the company will be engraved – when it is pressed together on a sheet of paper it will leave the name of the company clearly embossed upon the document. A company will often execute deeds, statutory company documents and share certificates which often provide space for a company seal, it is then common place for the directors of the company to sign the document as a witness.

TAX REGISTRATION – €49.99

In addition to the Company Registration, we will provide you with a fast track registration on your behalf with the Revenue Commissioners for Corporation TAX, PAYE, & VAT.

Once the company is set up, we can then register the company with the Revenue Commissioner for the relevant Taxes. If all the directors and shareholders have an Irish PPS number it will take a week to get the company Tax Number. There can be delays with the company VAT number been issued due to a backlog at the Revenue Commissioner.

REQUIREMENTS TO FORM A PRIVATE COMPANY LIMITED BY SHARES (LTD)

To form this type of company you need one Director, one Secretary (cannot be same person as the Director) and a registered office address.

  • Minimum of one Director (one director needs to be an EEA resident):

Anyone can be a director of a company once they are aged eighteen or over and you do not need any particular qualifications or experience. A person does not need to work for the company or own shares in it. One of the directors is required to be resident in a member state of the European Economic Area (EEA). If you don’t have a director who is based in the European Economic Area (EEA), you need to take out a Section 43 insurance bond. We require one proof of identity and one proof of address for all directors, secretary and shareholders (read below for more information).

  • Minimum one Secretary:

Anyone can be a secretary of a private company limited by shares and you do not need any particular qualifications or experience. A person does not need to work for the company or own shares in it. The secretary may be one of the directors of the company (only if the directors are more than one). A body corporate may act as a secretary to another company, but not to itself.

  • Shareholders (members):

Anyone can be a shareholder or member of a company and you do not need any particular qualifications or experience. A body corporate may act as a shareholder to another company. In a multi member company there has to be two or more shareholders and they will own 100% of the shares split whatever way they prefer.
Example Shareholder A: 75%, Shareholder B: 25%.
In a single member company there will be only one shareholder who will own 100% of the shares.
The maximum number of Shareholders (members) is 99. We require one proof of identity and one proof of address for all shareholders (read below for more information).

  • Registered office address:

It is a requirement that all companies formed in Ireland must have a registered office address based in Southern Ireland. The registered office of a company is where all CRO correspondence and all formal legal notices addressed to the company will be sent.
The address must be a physical location, not just a post office box number, because people have the right to visit the company’s registered office to inspect certain registers and documents and to deliver the documents by hand. A letter addressed to the company at its registered office address must be capable of being delivered by An Post.
If you do not have a registered office address in Ireland we will gladly provide you with this service (Registered Office information).

Note: We send all your paperwork to your registered office address.
