FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Company Bureau, the company formation and compliance specialists based in central Dublin, will mark 20 years in business in May 2017. Over that time the company has grown to become Ireland’s sector leader, incorporating over 25,000 companies since 1997. With a staff of 18 it has successfully weathered some big challenges and passed milestones such as the new Millennium, conversion from Punt to Euro, the Celtic Tiger, the Recession and the New Companies Act 2014.
With an unprecedented level of enquiries generated by Brexit, a raft of new company, accounting and anti-money laundering legislation in the pipeline, changes to the taxation of international companies, and the potential impact of Trump’s economic policies on Ireland, 2017 is already one of the busiest and most challenging years in the history of Company Bureau.
Over 20,000 companies were incorporated in Ireland in 2016 - the highest number since 1999. This is a trend that is expected to continue this year. With a history of innovation and a reputation for excellence, Company Bureau is ideally placed to service this growing demand. During the recession, the company had to innovate to survive. Some examples of this were a full re-design of their internal processes and service standards, and a huge emphasis on SEO and placing their website at the core of their marketing mix. Company Bureau was one of the first companies in Ireland where you could order a limited company online through their website www.companyformations.ie. Such innovation lead to a period of the fastest growth in the company’s history.
Ancillary services provided by Company Bureau include company secretarial, compliance work, web design, virtual office services and optimising opportunities created from the Companies Act 2014. As well, the company works on equity seed capital schemes and registrations for High Potential Start Ups with Enterprise Ireland and the IDA. Company Bureau has won awards including ‘Business Formation Advisory firm of the year’ for 2012 to 2015 inclusive by Acquisition International in their M&A awards, and the ‘Innovation & Excellence Award’ for 2017 from Corporate LiveWire.
Directors Paula Horan and Andrew Lambe credit their success to their staff, encouraging autonomy, creativity and a positive workplace culture in their 19th century converted church office, ‘The Black Church’ which is ideally located in Dublin city centre.
