  • In general, Ireland is a jurisdiction with a standard level of taxation. However, Irish legislation provides the opportunity for registration and operating of companies with a zero rate of tax - the Limited Partnerships (L.P.).
  • The favourable tax regime of a L.P. is based on its “pass-through” status in that all profit received by the L.P. is considered to be transferred to its partners. Accordingly, if the partners are resident in a taxpaying jurisdiction, they will be obliged to pay tax in their country of residence proportionally to their share of participation in the Limited Partnership.
  • In Ireland there are certain obligations, including preparation of financial statements, which must be fulfilled by every type of company, including a L.P.
