Ireland is a leading location for the development, exploitation and management of intellectual property (IP). According to IDA Ireland, the number of global companies centralising their IP management in Ireland has made Ireland one of the largest exporters of IP in the world. One of the key drivers for this is the attractive tax regime, including the 12.5% corporation tax rate on trading income, a flexible 25% tax credit on the cost of eligible research and development activities, capital allowances on the cost of acquiring certain intangible assets and a large double tax treaty network to facilitate the flow of funds between Ireland and other countries. Ireland has signed double tax treaties with over 70 countries.
