Do You Need A Dublin Business Address?
If you’re currently looking to set up a limited company in Ireland, then you may need a Business Address in Dublin too. A Business Address is also called a Trading Address and this is where you conduct your business on a day to day basis. We can help by providing a Dublin address for your new company at our office in 8-9 Marino Mart, Fairview, Dublin 3.
Why You Might Need A Business Address In Dublin
- You are running an online business, which has no physical address
- Your team works remotely in Ireland or abroad
- You are 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 at home and you wish to keep your home address private
There are many advantages to having a Business Address, including:
- Tax Registration: When you register for tax, for example when you are applying for an Irish VAT number, the Revenue Commissioners will ask for a Business Address to be supplied on your application form. This is the case 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 business 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 Office address is where the CRO will send all of your company secretarial notices. Note that you can use the same address for both Registered Address and Business Address.
