Expanding overseas


Overview

Are you an Irish business looking to expand internationally into new markets? If so, you are not alone!

Entering overseas markets is a ‘commercial must’ in many cases. However, there are many local, regional and national factors that need to be considered. In particular, it is important to consider the tax and commercial implications of your corporate structure. We have helped many companies move into new markets and we have the global reach and experience to support your expansion plans.

We have worked with clients expanding into overseas markets, such as Brazil, Russia, India, China, USA, the UK as well as other markets, such as Indonesia, Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa, Turkey, Germany and France.
