Do You Need A Business Address In Dublin Address?

If you’re currently looking to set up a limited company online, then you are probably looking for a virtual office in Ireland too. We can help. Not every new business has its own business address, for a range of reasons.

  • You could be running an online business
  • Your team may work remotely in Ireland or abroad
  • You might be at a very early stage of your business and not ready to decide where you want to base your business
  • You work from your kitchen table and would prefer to work from home in the long term too.

Why You Might Need A Business Address In Ireland

There are many advantages to having a Business Address, which include the following:

  • Tax Registration: When you register for tax, the Revenue Commissioners will ask for a Business Address to be supplied on your application form. This applies whether you are a resident company, a non-resident company or a sole trader.
  • Correspondence: All your commercial business mail can be sent to and from this address
  • Privacy: You can protect the privacy of your home address, particularly now we are in the era of Google Maps, where a home address and premises can be found in just a few clicks. You may not wish your potential new clients to find that you are operating out of your kitchen!
  • Access to an office space: You might not need an office on a day to day basis but it’s useful to have occasional access to an office premises for meetings with directors or clients

Two things to note, however:

Firstly, there is a range of specific requirements requested by Revenue which your company must meet in order to qualify for corporation tax in Ireland. simply having a business address in Ireland does not mean your company will automatically be eligible for the 12.5% rate of Corporation Tax.

Secondly, by law, every company in Ireland must have a registered office address. All legal notices and correspondence with the Companies Registration Office are sent to this address. It’s also where you keep your statutory registers and records, such as the register of directors and minute books. These documents must be available for inspection by the CRO or Revenue.

What Is The Difference Between A Registered Office Address And Business Address?

Think of your Business Address as being the same as a Trading Address, the definition being that this is where you trade from. Revenue are interested in knowing where you are conducting your business from and so they ask you for your Business Address.

A registered address is where the CRO will send all of your company secretarial notices. Please take note that you can use the same address for both registered address and business address.
