BAU 2015


DEinterntional Ireland was this year for the first time represented on the BAU Munich, in order to give German companies working in the building industry the chance to introduce themselves to the Irish market.

Due to 1.900 exhibitors from 40 different countries as well as 235.000 visitors the BAU Munich is the World’s leading trade fair for Architecture, Materials and Systems. In 2014 a lot of multinational companies that are based in Ireland invested very heavily into Ireland as a business location. Moreover, German companies are represented on many construction sites as well. In addition to that, the house building industry as well as the housing renovation industry increased significantly; thereby they revert especially to German energy-efficient products.

Therefore the service department DEinternational Ireland has visited interested companies on the fair and furthermore gave a lecture on the “Booming of the Irish economy – an overview” in corporation with the federal minister for Economy and Energy. Within this framework many questions of the corporations’ could be clarified.

Reasons for building companies to found their business premises in Ireland, could be among other things the low employers’ social security contributions of 10.75% as well as the low corporation tax of 12.5%. DEinternational thereby offers to the companies, to support them with their market entry in legal and tax related matters as well as for example with the marketing. Registration and reclamation are additional special services of the German-Irish Chamber of Commerce for the building industry.
