Company Registrations

We file all applications for new companies allowing for companies to be incorporated and registered with the CRO within days of our receipt of the signed incorporation documents.

The constitution document we submit to the CRO is pre-approved and only the following changes can be made for each company:

  • Name of the Company
  • Shareholders and their shareholding
  • Authorised Share Capital

Once incorporated the constitution document can be changed by way of a special resolution after incorporation.

The principal activity must match the NACE code set out in the online application form A1.

In dealing with various departments of the Companies Registration Office on a daily basis, we have the best contact details and procedures in place for seeking information from the Companies Registration Office regarding registration and post-registration matters.

Non-Filing/ Late Filing

In Ireland the Companies Registration Office has struck off many thousands of companies for non-filing or late filing of annual returns. We provide a company secretarial service to ensure that important statutory requirements are fulfilled.
