The Irish government is keen to promote an environment which is attractive for foreign investment. The low corporate tax rate for trading profits of 12.5%, coupled with many tax exemptions , 70 global tax treaties and incentives to invest, make Ireland a very attractive jurisdiction in which to set up a company.

Tax reliefs form an important part of the total incentive package available to overseas companies establishing a business in Ireland. Foreign investment incentives in Ireland include:

  • Holding company regime; no capital gains tax on disposal of shares in a subsidiary company;
  • Research and development (R&D) credit;
  • Capital allowances for expenditure on intangible assets;
  • Low (if any) tax on certain foreign dividends;
  • Tax allowances for Intellectual Property;
  • EU parent/subsidiary directive;
  • No withholding tax for certain payments of dividends, interest and royalties;
  • Credit for tax on foreign branch profits;
  • Low Capital Gains Tax (CGT) exemption on disposal of company shares;
  • Reorganisation and restructuring tax reliefs;
  • Intellectual property stamp duty exemption;
  • No thin capitalisation or CFC rules;
  • No Transfer pricing rules for companies with Revenue below €750,000;
  • Employee grants of up to €18,000 for each employee
