Ireland is a great place for new Startups
Michel started his business in the UK at the beginning of 2017 but Brexit drove his decision to set up a Limited Company in Ireland. He feels that if he hadn’t made the move to Ireland, Automotive Cloud would not have been able to remain in business.
Setting up in Ireland can allow businesses to continue trading in ways that would lead to non-compliance issues in the UK post-Brexit.
Ireland is a great place for Michel and his company to do business.
Room for expansion
After great success moving his company to Ireland, Michel feels like he should have moved to Ireland sooner. Automotives Cloud is growing fast and he hopes to expand to a B2C element in the future.
Michel has said that moving his company to Ireland was a great decision and it has been an even better decision to start working with the Accountant Online team. He is very happy with the service he has received from the beginning.
It was important for Michel to have an accountant since he originally started his business in the UK. He needed a specialist in Irish accountancy practices. He is pleased with the ongoing communications with his accountant Tom Francis, who makes regular contact with Michel about his business and its accounts. Michel also enjoys the monthly masterclasses and other events we host at Accountant Online and likes to join these as often as possible.
Automotives Cloud’s system is linked to databases in 22 countries and connected to 40 different advertising platforms. The company now hires 19 people who work directly and indirectly for the company across a variety of locations and specialisms.
