Conversion Process (18 month transition period.
This “conversion” procedure affects approximately 85% of Irish registered companies which are currently Private Companies (Limited by Shares). All companies currently registered as the “Private Limited by Shares” company type must choose to convert to one of these two new company types – LTD (Private company limited by shares), or DAC (Designated Activity Company). Existing private companies (limited by shares) (EPCs) on the register do not automatically become LTD companies on 1st June 2015.
Converting during the transition period:
Companies should convert as early as possible. Contact us or visit our Services page to choose conversion.
Conversion to LTD company type.
Conversion to DAC company from Private Limited Company
The End of the transition period.
*It should be remembered that all Private Limited by Shares companies can convert to the Designated Activity Company type, by re-registering, during the Transition Period. Where Private limited by shares companies do not convert to either the LTD/DAC model, then the Registrar of Companies will give effect to the conversion requirements and the companies will become LTD companies.
