A company is considered local in Ireland if: it is registered domestically, or it is managed and governed from Ireland. However, there are some nuances.
In particular, companies registered in Ireland from January 1, 2015, are considered local companies for tax purposes, while companies registered before this date would be considered local companies for tax purposes from January 1, 2021 (in most cases).
Why do we need this information? We will understand further.
Local companies are taxed on profits made both domestically and abroad. Foreign companies are taxed only on income generated domestically.
Separately, it should be noted that income from foreign sources received by local companies is subject to corporate tax in the same way as income received domestically.
Profits of foreign representative offices of local companies are taxable locally if Ireland does not have a double tax treaty with these jurisdictions. This situation is with the income from foreign investment and trade income.
Corporate tax is levied on the profits of the company, which consists of:
1) Income from the direct activities of the company;
2) Passive income;
3) Capital increase. Standard household expenses can usually be deducted in calculating taxable income.
