One of the principal ways of carrying on a business is by way of private company. The most common form of private company is one limited by shares.
Companies have an obligation under the Companies Acts to conduct their affairs in a certain manner. The Companies Registration Authority oversees the compliance of companies and it is the statutory body for registering new companies in Ireland. Once a company has been incorporated both the company and its officers have certain obligations under the Companies Acts, including the obligation to file certain documents. The Companies Registration Authority can take a number of measures to deal with companies who fail to comply with these obligations including, prosecution of the company or directors or striking a company off the register.
