Global Expansion in Ireland

With one of the lowest onshore statutory Corporate Tax Rates in the world, Ireland offers up an attractive tax regime for businesses looking to expand on its shores. Not only this, over 1000 multinationals are growing their facilities thanks to increased profitability.

Despite Ireland’s attractiveness, their payroll processes are by no means simple. You’ll need a payroll and HR specialist who is well-versed in Ireland’s regulations and legislation, ensuring your business remains compliant.

Employer Must-Dos

In Ireland, the following financial statements must be submitted to strict deadlines:

  • Balance Sheet
  • Profit & Loss
  • Minimum Capital Requirement Report

What are the regular working hours in Ireland?

In Ireland, the maximum average working week is 48 hours (based on set monthly average guidelines). When it comes to Sunday hours, employers must provide a reasonable allowance, a reasonable pay increase or reasonable paid time off work if there is no agreed entitlement.


In Ireland, an employer must have grounds for dismissing an employee – unfair dismissal in Ireland is covered by the Unfair Dismissals Acts 1977.
