Company Incorporation

Choosing the right “type” of company when forming your company is essential. Since the introduction of the Companies Act 2014 there are numerous company types that can be formed in Ireland.

We have experience in setting up all types of companies and company structures – limited companies (Ltd), Designated Activity Companies (DAC), unlimited liability companies (ULC) and Companies Limited by Guarantee (CLG). We can also assist you in clarifying the requirements around directors’ duties, shareholders obligations and rights, the registered office and company secretaries duties .

Non - Profit Incorporations

Many companies that are formed in Ireland are formed for charitable purposes. There are specific provisions around the type of company that can avail of charitable exemption and a company’s constitution must have specific provisions that comply with both the Companies Act 2014 and the Charities Act 2009.

Management Companies are incorporated to manage a property or properties on behalf of the owners. These are required where you have a block of apartments or shared services that are under the control of the company. These types of companies may require specific provisions to be inserted if they are to comply with the Multi Unit Developments Act 2011.

We can ensure that whether you are a non-profit, charity or a management company that all statutory provisions have been complied with in setting up your company.

Re-registration of Company Type

It may be necessary for a company to change “type” – be it from limited liability to unlimited, or vice versa or you may require your company re-registered as a company limited by guarantee.

We can draft all company secretarial documents to effect this change and arrange for the relevant documents to be filed with the Companies Registration Office.

Annual General Meetings

Organising your Annual General Meeting (AGM) can be a time-consuming task. There are a number of formalities that have to be met – from the notices given to the members and officers to requirements around proxies and corporate representatives.

We can assist in ensuring that your AGM documents are in order and issued in the time frame set out by the Companies Act 2014.

Extraordinary General Meetings

Extraordinary General Meetings (EGM) are any general meetings that are not a company’s AGM. There are numerous reasons why a company may need to hold an EGM such as a requirement to amend the company constitution or approve a specific transaction mandated under the Companies Act 2014.

We can assist you in drafting these documents to the highest standard and ensure that all requirements around approving the required resolutions are met.
