What you will learn

  • Documentation and accounting requirements

    As a business owner, there are certain accounting and compliance requirements from Revenue and the Companies Registration Office (CRO). You should be aware of your obligations if you are thinking about setting up a business in Ireland.

  • The business set-up process

    Knowing what's involved in starting a business is the first step to becoming a business owner. We go through all the steps you need to know to set up as a Sole Trader or Limited Company in Ireland.

  • Irish tax system - Corporation Tax and VAT

    We go through the Irish corporation tax and Value Added Tax (VAT) rates. This is an important topic for entrepreneurs starting a business.
