A brief guide to forming a company

Incorporating a Company

The most common forms of business organisations operating in Ireland are:

  • A Limited Company
  • An Unlimited Company
  • Investment Funds

Irish registered companies can be formed having public or private status and with limited or unlimited liability.

Irish company law also provides for the use of the Societas Europaea or “SE’s” which is a European public limited company.
