German-Irish Business

From our office in West Dublin we are offering specialist expertise in German – Irish Business. With German speaking staff and a wide network of business partners, contact us to talk about your specific requirements.

Irish companies wishing to do business in Germany and vice versa are confronted with a myriad of administrative issues.

Business Set Up: Together with our sister company MHL-Law (based in Munich and providing legal, tax and other business advisory services for the German market), MHL Support Services Ltd. offers competent and unbureaucratic support in setting up and running a business in Ireland and/or Germany.

Business Networks: We work closely with the German-Irish Chamber of Industry and Commerce, Enterprise Ireland, the Irish Exporters Association, Advantage Austria and other business partners to achieve optimum results for the various kinds of requests our private and corporate clients may have in all German-Irish matters.

NEW! Dedicated Customs and Logistics advice:

  • A quick-check on your customs processes with recommended actions.
  • Analysis of your current processes regarding risk, efficiency and cost.
  • Support in defining and implementing the required customs processes.
  • Help to reduce compliance risk to a minimum (by saving money and avoiding penalties).
  • Help to improve your knowledge base for valid master data (e.g. tariff classification, export control classification, country of origin, preferential origin)

Adhering to regulations not only avoids painful consequences (fines, imprisonment, loss of reputation and revenue, withdrawal of authorizations and loss of confidence by authorities) but it is also a chance to organise your customs processes to reduce processing costs, duties and even aid the development of your competitive advantage.
