Using my UK company in Ireland

If you’re reading this and you’re a UK Contractor with a UK Limited Company and you’re taking a contract role in Ireland then you probably want to know  whether you can use your UK Company here and run all your income through it.

The short answer is yes!

There are lots of timelines that are relevant; 30 days, 60 days, 183 days. The biggest mistake UK contractors have made in the past is assuming that if a contract is for 183 days (6 months) or less, that there’s no need to do anything. This is wrong.

If you’re going to be living in Ireland during the course of your contract and you’re going to be in the country for more than 60 days then you will be liable to Irish payroll taxes so you need to talk to us about planning carefully to maximise your retention. However, in certain circumstances there are exemptions which can be applied for which means you don’t need to pay Irish income taxes. We get a full understanding of your situation and give you the advice most suited to your particular circumstances.


“Having successfully completed my contract I am returning to the UK. Thank you for your assistance in respect of my income and Irish tax obligations before returning to the UK. Also I am delighted to know that I am able to transfer to your UK office as I have been really pleased with all the help that you have given me while I’ve been in Ireland. Many thanks. ”

What should I do before my contract starts?

  • Pick a great spot to base yourself in Ireland that will allow you a great lifestyle while you’re here.
  • Call our solutions team on 1800 54 54 22 or Schedule a Call-back at a time that suits you.
  • Ask us all the questions that are on your mind and we’ll talk you through everything in a really clear way. Then we’ll ask you some questions to make sure you get the best advice to remain fully compliant.
  • We’ll advise you how you can maximise your retention, still take UK dividends at the low tax rate and avoid paying corporation tax in Ireland.

What about my U.K. Accountant?

  • If you don’t have a U.K. Accountant, or want to change then we provide that service too. Our office in Central London manages the affairs of many, many UK contractors.
  • If you want to stay with the accountant you have, that’s perfectly okay. Once you introduce us to them we’ll supply them with everything they need. There’s a couple of forms they need to file with HMRC as your UK accountant, but we do 90% of this work.
  • We even run your UK payroll every month (as well as your Irish payroll) and give your accountant all the figures they need.
  • The process is really smooth and pain free for you as your Irish and UK accountants are working seamlessly together to maximise your take-home pay.

Getting started

However long your contract is, we always set you up properly from the start because we’ve often seen contracts be extended. If you haven’t set yourself up right from the start and your contract goes beyond 6 months, then you’re likely to have a tax bill you weren’t expecting.

We don’t take risks with your money – we give you the right advice and the best solution right from the start.
