Brexit

Ireland as your EU Gateway

Brexit

BREXIT – UK Business 

The United Kingdom has voted to leave the EU. This decision will impact upon UK policy and legislation, but changes are likely to take time, so businesses in the UK businesses have time to consider their options. 

Ireland is a committed Eurozone economy and EU Member State with a business-friendly working environment. 

Ireland may be a small island, but it is also a major gateway to Europe for businesses looking to expand internationally. Ireland’s open for business attitude, efficient tax regime and educated and highly skilled workforce have ensured that Ireland is the destination of choice for at least 1,000 multinational businesses to date. 

If you would like to join these businesses in globalising your business, we would love to assist. We have partnered with HLB International and Irish State Agencies to ensure that we can advise you fully on how to expand successfully in Ireland. 

Inward investors into Ireland use a variety of structures to enter the Irish market. The right structure will depend on factors such as the specific sector, business product, service and the extent to which a local presence is required. Examples include: 

  • Trading through a private limited liability company; 
  • Setting up an Irish registered branch office; 
  • Acquiring an existing business in Ireland; 
  • Using a joint venture with a third party; and/or 
  • Entering into partnership with another business. 

We are experts in helping businesses operating globally in navigating the Irish regulatory systems, providing practical and solution-based advice on the potential ways to minimise the impact of the current uncertainty.
