New Company – opening a bank account and registering for tax

In approximately 10 working days the company will receive the “Certificate of Incorporation”. This Certificate along with a signed copy of the Memorandum and articles of association will be required by the bank to allow an account to be opened in the company’s name (along with the directors I.D and proof of address).

The company can also be registered with the Revenue Commissioners for whatever taxes it may be liable to at this point.
