Registering My Business in Ireland
asked by Nick Schu posted 3 Years ago at 13:52
Hi all i work on a consultant basis and have a limited company, I pay my self mainly on a dividend basis and am currently in the upper bracket of Income Tax, I was thinking of re-registering my business in Ireland to take advantage of the low corporation tax of 12.5%. With all the issues occurring at moment and possible bail outs will the Irish Government be looking to raise corporation tax to increase revenues.

Low rates are what keeps them as being so attractive to large multinationals, facebook to name one of numerous corporations that have their European HQ's there. Ireland will do what ever they can to keep these corps there so i wouldn't worry too much about them raising it. Lets see if they take the bailout.
