Startup – Ireland

The Local Enterprise Office provides advice, information and support to starting up or growing a business.

If a business is being established using the entrepreneur's true name, there is no requirement for the business name to be formally registered. If a business is to be carried out under a name other than the entrepreneur's true name, registration of the business name is obligatory and can be registered online. If formal registration is required, it is not possible to fully register a company electronically, under Irish law, as a statutory declaration cannot be made electronically. However, the Companies Registration process in Ireland is quick and efficient.
