- Minimum of two directors (one director needs to be an EEA resident):
Anyone can be a director of a company 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 (last service at bottom of page). We require one proof of identity and one proof of address for all directors, secretary and shareholders (click here for more information).
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. A body corporate may act as a secretary to another company, but not to itself.
Anyone can be a member of a company and people do not need any particular qualifications or experience.
We require one proof of identity and one proof of address for all members (ID requirements).
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 for a fee of €250.00 per annum (Registered Office information).
