Stamp Duty

If you are starting a business, you may have to consider Stamp Duty. Stamp duty is due on documents that transfer ownership of property, or are agreements to transfer ownership of property, including an interest in property. This is the case if they are executed (signed, sealed or both) in Ireland or, if executed outside Ireland, they relate to property in Ireland or something done or to be done in Ireland. You also pay Stamp Duty on certain leases and agreements to lease.

Property includes residential property such as houses and apartments. It also includes non-residential property such as agricultural land and office and commercial buildings.

You can find more information about Stamp Duty in the Property section.
