I need to compare the cost of operating an Irish company and Uk company with an income of 100k pa. Is there a spreadsheet calculator that can used to compare these types of things?

Hello, I'm Keith and happy to help you with your question.

bigduckontax :

In general terms Ireland would appear to be a better location. The Irish Corporation Tax rate is levied at 12.5% whilst in the UK it is 20% it for companies with your profit level.

Customer:

yes i have seen this head line rates but need a more indepth analysis please

Customer:

currently with the UK you can take income as dividends at 20% how would you take out cash in a irish company, what expenses would not be claimable in ireland that can be in the UK etc.

Well, not quite!

Dividend Withholding Tax in Ireland

Dividend Withholding Tax is deducted at the rate of 20% from dividends paid by Irish companies. It can be set off against income tax due, or reclaimed where the recipient of the dividend is not liable to tax.

So much for the Irish Companies.

In the UK companies distributing dividends make a notional tax deduction of 10%. The recipient is only taxed at 10% unless the gross income puts them into higher tax brackets. Then it is grossed up to the higher rates.

Yes, but as a supplementary item to an existing question of a nature which would require substantial effort. It should be posted as an entirely new question.
