EFM Ireland FD, John Devaney, establishes an EU entity for UK based information governance specialist in Dublin

Many congratulations to our EFM Ireland associate finance director, John Devaney, on your recent client feedback.


Oyster IMS is a UK based information governance specialist with clients across the EU including in Ireland. In order to better service clients located in the EU, Oyster IMS took the strategic decision to form an EU-based business and chose to base their office in Ireland. John Devaney of EFM Ireland was able to assist Oyster IMS in establishing a corporate entity in the republic of Ireland, allowing them to commence trading.

This involved setting up an Irish statutory entity, appointing a company secretary, establishing a registered office, opening a bank account, registering for PAYE, VAT & corporation tax, and meeting all other EU compliance requirements.

Josef Elliott, Managing Director of Oyster IMS Ireland, said:

We were delighted to work with EFM Ireland in establishing our EU presence and found them to be experts in the SME Irish corporate entity space. We look forward to working with them in the future, to ensure that we remain fully compliant, and assisting Oyster IMS’ growth strategy within the EU. EFM Ireland offered us a cost effective and rapid solution to a significant business challenge”.
