Company Formation

There are many different types of company and you may want to form them for different reasons.  Some people automatically assume that a limited company is the way to go.  Well, they could be wrong.  There are advantages and disadvantages to each, different rules and regulations.  There are duties and responsibilities you have to adhere to.  


For a fee of only €79, we will bring you through the process, listen to what you want to do and generally give you the information which will allow you to make up your own mind.

Below are some of the different types of company:

  • Business Names:
    A business name can be formed by an individual (soletrader), a partnership and a limited company.
  • Partnership:
    Where two or more people want to go into business together without forming a limited company, they form a partnership.
  • Limited company:
    There are four different types of limited company, limited by guarantee not having a share capital, limited by guarantee having a share capital, limited by shares and public limited companies.
  • Single member companies.
  • Unlimited companies – private and public
  • Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (UCITS)
  • European Economic Interest Groupings (EEIG)
  • Societas Europaea (SE)

There are members, shareholders, directors and secretaries and they all have different roles with different duties and responsibilities.  You have to be aware of them.

There are memorandum and articles of association.  What are they and what is their significance?
