Company Types in Ireland

There are various company types available in Ireland. Many of them are private limited company types. Companies are separate legal entities from that of the individuals involved in them. Depending on the type of business, there are a number of different options to choose from when setting up a limited liability company or an unlimited company in Ireland, the most common being the Private Company Limited by Shares (LTD). Check below for more information on the different types of companies that we can assist you to set up. Irish companies are governed by the Companies Act 2014.

Company Bureau can also assist you in registering the more complex company types such as companies limited by guarantee with a share capital and Section 110 companies. Please contact us with your requirements.

Alternatives to Registering a Company in Ireland

Irish Residents can register their business as a Sole Trader or a General Partnership as an alternative to a limited company. These types of business registrations are governed by the Business Names Act 1963 and the Partnerships Act 1890, respectively.

While uncommon, it is also possible to register Limited Partnerships in Ireland which are governed by the Limited Partnerships Act 1907.

Non-Residents with existing overseas companies may wish to register a Holding Company as an Irish subsidiary or a Branch to expand their operations in Ireland, which we can assist with.
