Setting up a company in Ireland after Brexit

Brexit? No problem. Simply set up a company in Ireland

Are you still holding and using a UK Limited after Brexit? Prevent problems caused by Brexit and establish your new company in Ireland in a legally secure and reliable manner. After Brexit, Ireland has an even greater status as an English-speaking economic center within the EU. In addition, company owners are sustainably protected by EU primary law. This means that combinations of an Irish limited company with a limited partnership in Germany or Austria are still advantageous.

Both structures benefit from a reasonable tax regime, with only 12.5% corporate tax, and are compatible with German and Austrian laws. Unlike UK Limiteds, the use of Irish Limiteds is in line with EU laws and must be accepted and registered by the Registrars in any EU country.

Furthermore, Irish Limiteds offer much better protection against liability claims, which can sometimes result in personal liability when using a GmbH.

German-speaking specialists will help you realize your plans on the Green Island. Please use the form below to contact us to receive an offer or to arrange a meeting.

Ideal Tax Framework for Holding Companies

Before Ireland joined the European Union, the former “offshore” regulations were abolished. The Irish legislation thus today fulfills all relevant EU standards, EU regulations, the OECD- standards, the FATF and the FSF.

Irish companies are recognized throughout the European Union as EU companies with an extensive Tax Treaty Network. This circumstance is used particularly by holding companies. Ireland nowadays has one of the most favourable Tax Regimes and competes within the EU with Cyprus, Malta, the Netherlands and Luxembourg at a split of the cost or with UK as a NON-EU Jurisdiction.

Why not speak to us to about the advantages of a holding structure.

What you need to consider

A long-term stay in a country for more than 183 days will usually (and automatically lead)  to an unlimited tax liability for your world income. Some countries go even further and already assign this tax liability if you can permanently use your own apartment (this can even be the room in your parents’ house or a regularly visited hotel) which you can access with your own keys – knows as “Schlüsselgewalt” in German speaking countries. This rule establishes or maintains an unlimited Tax liability for your world income. If this subject is of interest, you may find out more on our dedicated website for Taxation.

The often cited and in general used “183-Days-Rule” is not entirely correct. It can be only used to a limited extend as few countries (Germany) deem a personal tax liability if one spends in total more than 183 days within the country in two consecutive years, spanning two tax periods.

One can therefore only advise that people interested in relocating their place of residence not to rely on start-up agencies and other jokers – the pitfalls are simply too great and sound advice is required. A few advisors (specialized lawyers, accountants) study tax law for years, others do a weekend seminar or attend the Google University – where do you feel better off?

It’s amazing what’s on offer on the internet. Believe us – there is no point in having no tax residency/residence anywhere. If in doubt, you never gave up your original tax liability (in your country of birth) or you are automatically subject to tax through your passport. 

If you have plans for company formations in Ireland it makes sense to speak about your relocation in detail. 

TOP Jurisdiction for EU-Residence

Ireland, however, offers ideal conditions for a tax residence. To obtain a tax residence, one need to stay more than 183 days in Ireland. With close links to other European countries, good flight connections and travel times of roughly two hours into the center of Europe, is this an ideal place to conduct business of any kind.

Of course, you are not allowed to stay in any other country for more than 183 days which would trigger an unlimited tax liability there. This concept is therefore ideal for everyone who can live and work flexibly (e.g. digital nomads).

If you come to us, you can rely on well-founded and legally sound advice. Together we will find your ideal life concept.
