Go Global - expanding to Ireland

Expand your business to Ireland effortlessly with a global partner

Ireland's markets are modern and international, and its governance policies aim to support a stable economy and the needs of businesses. That combined with the country's well-educated workforce, the attractive fiscal environment, and the technological infrastructure create a positive business environment. However, expanding your business can require a lot of resources and practical arrangements. No one has everything covered up by themselves - our experts will be happy to help you plan the big steps!

Greenstep is part of the international MSI Global Alliance. MSI Global is a network of more than 260 independent accounting and legal firms from more than 100 countries with over 30 years of successful experience. With the MSI Network, we will ensure that you have the best local financial partner with you, both at home and in Ireland. If you wish, we can also coordinate cooperation between the countries by a "Shared Service Center" in Finland, so the administration is always as easy as possible for you.

When you go global with a partner, you avoid unnecessary trial and error as well as common mistakes, such as too rapid growth without sufficient processes or not being aware of all the necessary laws, regulations, or policies. We already have experience with customers in Ireland, and we are constantly looking to expand our expertise and develop our services. All global solutions are tailor-made - please book an appointment with us to discuss more the possibilities for your company.
