When I decided to setup my own Production Facility early in 2019, Upton Ryan were a natural choice and I found them more than helpful with my start up. They advised & helped me every step of the way from company formation through to Revenue registrations, setting up & running my company’s accounts system & payroll to dealing with Enterprise Ireland Grant Applications etc. etc.
