Limited Company Registered Office Requirements in Ireland

Last updated: Jun 16, 2022

Every company incorporating in Ireland is required to have a registered office within the country. This is a requirement of the Companies Registration Office (CRO) in Ireland and the registered office address needs to be provided upon the creation of your company. This address is where official documents are served and where people have the right to visit to inspect records and to make deliveries by hand. As a result, the CRO will not accept PO Box numbers as a registered address.

If you have a residence or offices in Ireland, then you can use one of those as your registered address. If you do not have a residence or office in Ireland, or you just do not want to use them as your registered address, then you can use a Virtual Office provider.

Virtual Office services

Each Service Provider will offer their own tailored package. In general, you can use their office as your company’s Registered Address and Business Address while the providers differ on how they deal with your post received at their office and what optional extras are available.

  1. Registered Business Address — You can use the provider's address as your company's registered address to incorporate your company and for correspondence with the Irish Revenue Commissioners.
  2. Post — the provider accepts your mail and either emails/posts you a copy or holds it for collection. Often, there are additional charges from the provider for posting your mail.
  3. Optional Extras — This will include such things as:
    • Telephone and fax answering/redirecting
    • Use of meeting rooms at the provider's premises
