Fellow Chartered Certified Accountant and Chartered Tax Advisor

I work closely with high potential Startups and SMEs, providing expert business advice and guidance and ensuring their statutory requirements are taken care of.

Why should I attend this webinar?

  • Receive accounting advice from a Certified Public Accountant

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

  • Understand 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.

  • Ask questions about Irish tax

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

  • Find out what expenses your business can claim

    Expenses can lower the amount of tax your business pays so it is important that you know which ones you can claim. Understanding the rules will help your business start in the correct way.

  1. What is the difference between a Sole Trader, Limited Company & Partnership?
  2. How do I qualify for the 12.5% Corporation Tax?
