Many UK businesses have decided to set up an Irish company for part or all of their operations prior to Brexit becoming a reality on 01 January 2021. This can be an ideal solution to maintain trade and operations within the EU.
Any Irish company, however, that only has UK resident directors need to address this issue immediately to ensure that they are compliant with Irish company law post 31 December 2020.
These companies are required to implement one of the following three options before the end of 2020 to ensure compliance with the company law:
- Appoint another director who is a resident in the European Economic Area (EEA);
- Put in place the Section 137 Revenue Bond; or
- Provide a Real & Continuous Link to Ireland. Please note this option will require Revenue approval and several Irish-based employees.
If you require more information on the above please do not hesitate to contact one of our offices by filling out an enquiry form here
