Brexit Impact on Company Directors

Brexit Impact on Company Directors

Every Irish registered company is required to have at least one EEA- resident director from 1st January 2021.


Sec 140: Real and Continuous Link Certificate

The company may apply it to show that it has a real and continuous relationship in one or more commercial activities in the State.

Sec 137: Non-Resident bond

No EEA director is required for companies registered holding this bond. It is an insurance bond value of €25,000 (not a cost) purchased from an insurance broker last for 2 years.

It must be recognized that failure to have at least one EEA-resident director of an Irish corporation is a criminal offense.
