A Guide to Doing Business-Ireland

A Guide to Doing Business-Ireland

Published by dmaproiect
Over 1,000 international companies serve their European market
from Ireland. These companies are involved in a wide range of
activities and sectors including technology, pharmaceuticals,
biosciences and manufacturing. The attraction of Ireland as an
investment location can be attributed to the positive approach of
successive Irish governments to the development of inward
investment, its membership of the European Union (EU), a very
favourable corporate tax rate and a skilled and flexible labour pool.
The purpose of this publication is to provide an introduction to the
major business and legal issues to be considered by foreign
companies in establishing business operations in Ireland. The
discussion under each heading is not intended to be an exhaustive
analysis but rather to provide general observations and guidance to
the many questions we have encountered from clients doing
business in Ireland.
