The Complexities of Importing into Ireland

Standing in stark contrast to its Northern counterpart, the Republic of Ireland is a hub of tech activity in the region. Housing 9 of the top 10 global software companies, 9 of the top 10 US Technology companies, and 4 of the top 5 IT service companies, the country has solidified its standing as a Tech hotspot both regionally and internationally. However, this is not only a destination for household names. This country is also home to hundreds of Tech startups and SME’s. This entrepreneurial spirit is supported by a robust education system and an educated workforce. Although Brexit has effectively cut free trade between Ireland and the UK, the unique relationship it shares with the UK and geography with Northern Ireland may lead to interesting trade agreements between the two countries. Despite a significant foreign presence in the Irish Tech industry, importing still comes with considerable complexity and ever-changing compliance requirements.
