The benefit of trading through an Irish Limited Company has never been greater. The advantages of structuring your business in this way are:
- Limited Liability…this protects your personal assets should things go wrong!
- Low Irish tax rates…only 12.5% on all trading profits.
- Improved cash flow…due to the lower tax rates. Extra funds can be reinvested in the company and may earn a greater return than alternative investments.
- Choice over how and when you pay yourself…a self-employed businessperson’s profit is taxed on them personally irrespective of how much money they take out of the business.
