International Tax

It is well known that Irish people love to travel and conversely, Ireland has become home to many foreign nationals. Our increasingly global lives bring about various challenges, not the least of which is tax. Whether you are an Irish person with an overseas trade/employment or assets, or a foreign national living in Ireland, the tax landscape can quickly become complicated.


Tax can be levied on people in various ways by different countries. It is important that your affairs are managed so that you can minimise any tax cost both in Ireland and abroad. Matters that need to be considered are:

  • Are you Irish domiciled and how does that impact your tax exposure?
  • Do you own any overseas assets, such as a holiday home or company shares?
  • Does any other country have taxing rights on your income?
  • Are there any cross-border reliefs available?
  • Is there a tax treaty and how does this impact on domestic tax rules?
  • Where should you be making social insurance contributions?
  • Do you have family living abroad and how does that impact matters such as gifts and inheritances.
