At Gilroy Gannon, our experienced team takes on your burgeoning company’s individual needs and ensures that your company is set up correctly.
Are you setting up a business? It’s not as straightforward as many people believe it to be. At Gilroy Gannon, we’ve helped establish and incorporate hundreds of companies in the last fifty years.
Incorporation is the legal process of forming a corporate entity or company. It is a separate legal entity from its owners and shareholders, protecting shareholders. For this reason, a company must be set up correctly, especially if there are two or more people involved.
Who we can help
When forming a corporate entity, we can assist five different types of companies.
Private Company limited by Shares (LTD.)
An LTD does not have a memorandum of association and has no objects stated in its constitution. It is therefore very flexible. It can have a single director but must appoint a separate secretary in this situation.
Establishment of an External Company (Branch)
A foreign company may establish an external company within the State. Any company that establishes itself must register with the Irish Companies Registration Office (“CRO”) within 30 days of its establishment in the State.
Company Limited by Guarantee not having a share capital (CLG)
CLG is limited to its objects as set out in its memorandum of association. A CLG must have at least two directors and a company secretary. Charities and professional bodies commonly incorporate a CLG.
Public Limited Company (PLC)
A PLC is permitted to have shares listed on a stock exchange and offered to the public. It must have at least two directors and a company secretary.
Designated Activity Company (DAC)
A DAC must have the main objects clause included in its constitution. It has limited liability. It must have at least two directors and a company secretary.
