Start-a-Courier-Business-in-Ireland.pngA courier business in Ireland is incorporated following the legal procedures appliable to other types of commercial companies operating in this country. Investors who are considering opening an Irish company in this industry are required to obtain special permits and licenses, issued for various aspects of the company’s business activities. Our team of Ireland company formation agents can offer assistance on the main procedures that have to be completed, following the applicable legislation in the field. 

Register an Irish courier company  

An Irish courier business is required to register with the Companies Registration Office (CRO). The company’s representatives have to apply for a trading name, that should meet certain requirements, one of them referring to the uniqueness of the company’s name of the Irish territory
More details on the Irish courier businesses are available in the video below: 

The Company Law states that during the procedure of  company registration in Ireland any Irish business is required to establish a registered office and to obtain a company’s seal
At the same time, the legal entity chosen for incorporation should also register for social security and for other corporate taxation aspects. Our team of company incorporation representatives can offer in-depth assistance on such matters and can provide further advice on other relevant aspects. 

How to obtain business permits for courier companies - a process explained by our Ireland company formation agents

As mentioned above, the procedure of company formation stipulates that certain businesses have to obtain special permits and licenses, issued by the competent authorities. Companies which perform courier activities with vehicles which have a larger weight that 3.5 tones must obtain a Road Haulage Operator’s License, issued by the Department of Transport in Ireland
The license is required for any operator who transports goods belonging to one of the company’s clients
The company’s employees who are carrying their courier activities by using a truck must obtain a Certificate of Professional Competence, a document which ensures the fact that the drivers meet the required standards for driving a large vehicle
Businessmen are invited to contact our team of Ireland company formation consultants for further information on the registration of a courier business
