Why Ireland?


Ireland's tax regime is one of the most favourable in the world. We're famous for our 12.5% corporate tax rate. This rate combined with our intellectual property and research and development regimes creates lots of opportunities for your business to reduce its effective tax rate.


Ireland's workforce is well-educated and one of the youngest in Europe. We are experienced in helping multinationals already here to grow and expand. As a nation we're keen to learn, progress and not afraid to work hard. We're also renowned for attracting talent from the EU and beyond. We look forward to welcoming you.

Track record

The number of companies who have already chosen Ireland to do business speaks for itself. For more details on our industry experience take a look at our 'proven track record' section. Doing business in Ireland means instant access to the European marketplace. In addition, Ireland brings attractive opportunities for organisations to effectively structure their international expansion plans. You can also connect easily to Asia in the morning and the US in the afternoon!

Cost competitiveness

Competitve costs in property, rents, services, construction and labour make Ireland an increasingly attractive investment location. The availability of business incentives and grants also adds to our competitiveness.

Proven track record

  • Top 5 global software companies are all here
  • 14/15 top medical tech companies are here
  • 10/10 top pharma companies are here  
  • 18/25 top financial services companies are already here
  • 8/10 top industrial automation companies are here

Ireland continues to attract some of the world's most innovative companies. Many of these companies, from start-ups to established international organisations, lead the way in their respective industry sectors.

We're best known for our technology, pharmaceuticals and life sciences and financial services experience, however more recently we've attracted many social media and online gaming companies to our shores.

Many companies locate headquarters or holding companies here in addition to activities like research and development or shared services centres. This allows them to make the best use of Ireland as a low-tax hub to expand internationally and maximise the return for their business.
