Ireland: Ltd.

Why is it beneficial for a company to incorporate in Ireland?

Attractive tax policies, skilled labor force, vast expertise in hosting international companies, a truly business-friendly environment, and the country’s widespread network of international double tax agreements (DTAs) is an incomplete list of why Ireland is one of the best destinations for doing business. On top of that, Ireland offers an excellent Holding Company Regime! There’s no question why the vast majority of the world’s top tech giants have their European headquarters in Ireland.
