In 2013, Forbes, in its eighth annual ranking of the Best Countries for Business, placed Ireland in the top spot for the first time. Ireland scored well across the board when measuring its business friendliness. It is the only nation that ranks among the top 15% of countries in every one of the 11 metrics examined to gauge the best countries for business. Ireland ranks near the very top for low tax burden, investor protection and personal freedom. The Dublin Enterprise Zone has all the requirements for business success with low operating costs, low rents, low commercial rates and Ireland’s corporation tax rate of 12.5%, among the lowest rates in Europe. Apart from the attractive tax and costs structure, businesses in the Dublin Enterprise Zone also benefit from a world-class telecommunications network.
