Ireland continues to be one of the most favoured locations for global firms to use as their European headquarters. Many of the world’s biggest and most successful companies across a range of industry sectors already have operations here including Microsoft, Johnson & Johnson, IBM, Google and many more.
The key ingredients to Dublin’s success in attracting these companies include: a strong educated workforce; the youngest population in Europe under 35; a transparent and low corporate tax environment; the only English-speaking member of the Eurozone; the location being attractive for international talent; and, a strong choice of service providers. In our global complexity report Ireland also features as one of the easiest places to do business in terms of compliance.
Our core expertise:
TMF Group Ireland serves companies across three main sectors:
Structured Finance Services
One of the main attractions of Ireland in relation to securitisation and structured finance transactions, besides a transparent legal and regulatory environment, is the “section 110” tax regime, which allows for a range of asset classes to be held by certain Irish qualifying companies in a tax efficient manner.
TMF Group Ireland is fast becoming the leading provider of corporate services to Ireland’s securitisation and structured finance special purpose vehicles (“SPVs”). Our strong relationships with a diverse international client base including banks, private equity companies and hedge funds have resulted in a steady flow of new instructions. Of particular significance is new European CLO 2.0 transactions for which Ireland has become the jurisdiction of choice for many investment managers.
Ireland is at the forefront of the global aircraft leasing industry. Irish leasing companies manage manage around 40% of the world’s commercial aircraft or around $150bn of aircraft assets. The success of Ireland as an aircraft leasing hub is down to numerous factors, including the numbers of aviation executives present, Ireland being an English speaking member of the EU, the stable legal and regulatory environment, an extensive network of double tax treaties and world-class service providers including legal, tax, accounting and corporate services firms.
TMF Group Ireland serves some of the world’s leading aircraft leasing companies. We provide a complete servicing platform for new and existing leasing companies that wish to operate out of Ireland, including integrated accounting, tax compliance, HR and Payroll, corporate secretarial, cash management and directorship services. For special purpose companies “SPVs” that are set up with respect to financing aircraft and / or operating lease entities we provide corporate services in Ireland and also serve as a single point of contact for clients and TMF Group offices in other jurisdictions where aircraft are also leased.

Outsourced Business Services to multinationals
Global firms are increasingly making Ireland their chosen destination to set up operations that will reach a European market of about 500 million consumers, but conducting business domestically and internationally can be a challenge without local help. Ireland is looking to become the best small country in the world in which to do business. In 2013, Ireland has for the first time been named as the “best country for business” in rankings carried out by renowned US financial magazine Forbes.
At TMF Group Ireland we provide a complete “back office” for multinationals wishing to establish their base in Ireland as their Gateway to Europe. This includes company incorporation, HR and Payroll, accounting and tax and directorship services. From Ireland we provide a single point of contact for companies that expand across Europe and globally.
