Ireland is one of the world’s leading locations for Global Business Services. Organisations deploy their Business Service Centres in Ireland as a key strategic tool, leveraging people and resources around the world to maximise competitive advantage.
The availability of a highly educated, flexible and dynamic workforce has been a key element in attracting the Business Service Centres of world-leading organisations.
Ireland has developed key knowledge and expertise in the Business Services sector that enables teams to focus on efficiencies and innovation, especially in more complex business activities needing specialised skills.
Business Service Centres in Ireland often take the leadership role in a global network of service providers, ensuring a consistent focus on performance improvement, innovation and cost reduction.
Ireland provides the ideal environment for Business Service Centres to fulfil their growth potential both in terms of facilities, infrastructure and highly trained staff.
Business Service Centres can focus on conducting extensive business analysis, as well as corporate tasks, including control and compliance, merger and acquisition integration, and project/change management.
With good planning, Business Service Centres can drive a tax-based Global Earnings Mobility Strategy (GEMS) by locating their principal business entity in Ireland to avail of the 12.5% corporate tax rate, with the Business Service Centre alongside for maximum synergy.
While many companies initially base their core functional roles in Ireland, such as Finance, HR, IT, Procurement and Customer Management, many soon expand into other activities. This allows them to share and leverage existing resources, people and information for maximum impact across the business.
