Open an Agricultural Business in Ireland

Open an Agricultural Business in Ireland

Opening an agricultural business in Ireland will require obtaining special permits, which will be issued in accordance with the operations carried out by the respective company. For example, businessmen who are interested in Irish company formation in this industry should know that aquaculture is also included in this category and for this specific activity, the investors will need an Aquaculture Licence. At the same time, import- export activities in this sector will be aprooved only after receiving a permit and our team of specialists in Ireland company formation can provide more details on this aspect. 

Starting a company in Ireland  

In order to open a company in Ireland in the field of agriculture, the first aspect that should be completed refers to the registration of a trading name at the Companies Registration Office (CRO). Further on, the investors will need to establish a legal entity under which they will carry their commercial activities. 

It is important to know that most of the commercial companies in Ireland are registered as limited liability companies. In order to register this type of business form or any other one, it is required to notarize the company’s statutory documents in front of a public notary in Ireland

Ireland is known for its simple registration procedure, which can be completed on the CRO’s online platform

All companies performing commercial activities are required to register for corporate taxation, which also includes the registration for value added tax or social contributions for the company’s employees. More details on these procedures can be offered by our team of Ireland company formation consultants

Obtaining permits for agricultural activities in Ireland  

One of the compulsory procedures related to company registration in Ireland refers to the issuance of special permits. In the situation in which the company is involved in import – export activities, the investors will need to obtain an import license (AGRIM), but only in the situation in which the respective products are originated from a country outside the European Union (EU).  

As mentioned above, aquaculture activities will require a permit as well, which will be issued by the Aquaculture and Foreshore Management Division of the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine.  

Depending on the specific activities of the agriculture business, the investors may require different permits and those interested in further information on this subject are invited to contact our team of Ireland company formation agents for a detailed presentation.
