One director is required to be a permanent resident of a country in the European Economic Area.
Every company is required to have a minimum of 2 officers and where there is only one Director, this person cannot also be the Company Secretary.
Irish companies are required to have a Company Secretary who has the duty of filing the annual return, accounts ensuring that the Companies Act 2014 is complied with and carry out other functions that may be within the constitution.
We will act as your Company Secretary if required
Share Capital – Shareholders
The issued Share Capital is the amount of shares that a company has issued out of its nominal share capital
We will initially issue one hundred shares, with a nominal value of €1 each.
The minimum number of shareholders required is one and 100% overseas shareholders are permitted.
Ireland EEA Director Bond – Resident Director
This is the requirement to have an EEA Resident Director.
If an Irish Company does not have a Director who is resident in the European Economic Area (EEA), a Bond must be taken out and must have a minimum validity period of two years.
The Section 137 Non-Resident Directors Bond exempts companies registered in the Republic of Ireland from the requirement to have a Director who is resident in the European Union.
The Bond insures the company for a sum of €25,000 and we can arrange for a non-resident director bond to be deposited with the Irish government on your behalf.
The Constitution of a company sets out what the company may do which is very extensive and a NACE Code is required which outlines the principal activity of the company, which is used for statistical purposes.
