Companies registered in Ireland must have at least one director – a citizen of an EU member country. A company can still be registered if this condition is not met, but the company must take out a certificate of insurance for two years. It will cost 1 642.50 euro plus a premium of 25 thousand euro. This insurance will cover instances of the company not fulfilling its obligations to the state, such as not providing financial accounts.
