Irish Private Company Limited By Shares (LTD)

Service Details

This is the most common company type set up in Ireland every year.

If you’re new to registering a company in Ireland, we recommend checking out the 10 considerations below. If you’re already familiar with the process of setting up a private limited company in Ireland, you can proceed by clicking the link to customize your package, starting from €149.99.



Selecting a Company Name

Choosing the right company name is essential. It must adhere to the guidelines set by the Companies Registration Office (CRO). We can help you check the availability and uniqueness of your chosen name, but please note that the name can only be guaranteed once the CRO officially registers your business and issues the Certificate of Incorporation.


Choose Your Company Type

In Ireland, various company types are available. While there are many options, the most common choice for trading companies is the Private Company Limited By Shares (LTD). Here’s an overview:

  •  Private Company Limited By Shares (LTD): Most common for trading.
  • Designated Activity Company (DAC): Used for specific purposes or regulated companies.
  • Company Limited by Guarantee (CLG): Ideal for non-profits, charities, or property management.
  •  Unlimited Company (UC): May be exempt from financial statement filing.
  • Public Limited Company (PLC): Suited for larger trading enterprises.”


Select the Registered Office Address

Every business needs a registered office location. This is where legal documents must be delivered within the State, and it’s also where specific records like the company’s statutory register and minute book must be kept.


List the Directors.

Directors are legally responsible for the company. A Private Limited company can have just one director, but in such cases, a separate secretary is required as well.


Appoint a Company Secretary

Every corporation needs a company secretary. This individual can be a director or a separate entity. Opting for a secretary who won’t have an active role can be a smart choice, as they have fewer legal responsibilities compared to a director.


Assign a Shareholder

Every company must have at least one shareholder/member. Shareholders collectively own the company, so it’s vital to determine who holds the company’s shares and how many shares each shareholder will have. In some cases, corporations may have multiple share classes with different rights.


Allocate Authorized Share Capital

Authorized share capital is the maximum amount of capital a company can issue to shareholders as per its constitution. Often, a portion of this authorized share capital remains unissued. It’s crucial to note that this amount is a nominal figure and doesn’t require payment or entail any associated liability. The Companies Act of 2014 introduced the option of uncapped authorized share capital, eliminating the need for a specific authorized share capital limit under Irish law.


Allocate Issued Share Capital

The issued share capital refers to the total share capital that has been assigned to shareholders. Unlike many European countries, Irish company law doesn’t mandate that the issued share capital must be fully paid up. However, the shareholder’s liability is limited to the outstanding share capital amount. This concept forms the basis of a limited liability corporation in Ireland.


Specify Company Activities

Every business is involved in specific activities. An LTD company has the capacity to undertake a range of tasks, similar to a natural person. To determine the appropriate NACE code for the A1 form to be submitted to the CRO, we need to know the specific activities your organization intends to carry out.


Establish a Company Constitution

A company constitution is a formal document outlining the company’s policies and defining the relationships between the corporation, shareholders, directors, and other corporate officials. The length of the constitution is customizable, and while most formation agents use a one-page document, ours is a comprehensive 14-page document.
