HOW TO GET A PPS NUMBER
By Noel Murphy
If you have a job offer or are thinking of moving to Ireland to work you'll soon become aware of the importance of having a PPS number.
The tax system in Ireland works by taxing your entire income at particular rates. You need to apply for credits that will reduce the amount of tax deducted.
To do this, when you start your first job in Ireland you'll need to complete and sign a Form 12A (available from revenue.ie). But, in order to have the form accepted by Revenue you'll need to have a PPS number.
A PPS Number is your Personal Public Service Number. It's your unique identifying number for use with government bodies.
The economy in Ireland is recovering well from the 2008 crash. And as a result, Ireland is attracting significant foreign investment.
If you're overseas and thinking of forming a company in Ireland, what do you need to know?
Getting a registered office address
You can go through the legal process of setting up a company in Ireland from anywhere in the world provided that you can supply a registered office address in Ireland.
The registered office address is the legal address for the company. Many company formation specialists can provide a temporary registered office address to allow you to get started. So this is an easy hurdle to overcome.
In this ongoing series I've been looking at some of the challenges facing businesses when it comes to dealing with late payments from customers.
In our last instalment we consider how the basic practices of the business can be set up to cope with late payment. Let's look at 6 areas.
1. Contracts With Customers
The first line of defence against late payment is having properly designed contracts.
Your contracts will be most effective if they're written in clear language that is easily understood. Use short sentences. Keep terms and wording simple. It is important to have proper legal protection, but recognise the human factor. If a clause is complicated it's much more likely to be ignored.
