Clients considering setting up in business in Ireland will need to carefully consider the manner in which they do so. Traditionally business set up can occur as a sole trade, a partnership or the incorporation of a limited company. The way a client selects their business set up will depend largely on the type of business being carried out and the customer base being targeted. There are also risk elements to consider, for example if you set up as a sole trader and your business fails your personal assets could be at risk of sale to pay your creditors.
