Ireland has one of the most professional business environments in Europe and is one of the world s leading jurisdictions for fund domiciliation. Its main benefits include: Strong political and public support of EU membership and Monetary Union Common Law legal framework closely aligned with UK and US Only English speaking country in the Eurozone Stable political environment Important financial centre, where investment funds, bank, reinsurance businesses and holding companies have expanded during the last twenty-five years Top ranked country for availability of skilled labour, workforce flexibility, adaptability and productivity Long established, highly reputable and highly regulated choice for fund domiciliation No restrictions on marketing Irish funds by AIFMD compliant AIFMs Irish Stock Exchange is widely regarded as one of the leading exchanges in the world for the listing of investment funds Prudent but practical regulation by the Central Bank towards Funds, Managers, Administrators and Custodians with a sensitivity to international needs Consistent OECD member state white-list status No domestic legislation requiring publication in local newspapers or similar publications of all notices to investors (significant cost saving) Clearly defined tax regime Extensive network of double taxation treaties and Bilateral Memoranda of Understanding. In particular the US treaty works very well for Irish regulated funds which are investment companies or unit trusts Exemption from domestic corporation tax and VAT Introduction of the Exchange of Information provisions of the EU Savings Directive therefore Ireland is exempt from the withholding tax rates of 20%, rising eventually to 35% which apply to other member states which have not adopted these provisions Intellectual property (IP) revenues : Significant deductions on certain capital expenditure when acquiring IP. Tax depreciation equivalent to amortization or depreciation charge on IP capital expenditure or alternatively an election to claim tax deductions for 15 years of 7% and 2% in final year. Withholding tax rates: 20% as a general rule, however can be reduced or exempt based on the type and location of the recipient (distributions to EU or tax treaty recipients are exempt), while certain forms of debt instruments are also exempt from withholding tax Standard Irish VAT rate of 23%; 13.5% on land and buildings; 9% on certain tourism and leisure activities Leasing: Beneficial tax treatment for leases of short life assets (less than 8 years), such as aircraft, whereby the lessor may follow the accounting depreciation treatment of the asset allowing a faster write off of the capital cost of an asset rather than relying on tax depreciation over 8 years ) DOUBLE TAX TREATIES TREATIES CURRENTLY IN FORCE Albania Armenia Australia Austria Bahrain Belarus Belgium Bosnia Botswana.
