The life sciences industry in Ireland, and particularly the medtech sector, has had some tremendous achievements, a world leader in many fields. It is also facing an accelerated pace of change across a number of fronts, regulatory changes at an international and local level, supply chain issues, rising costs and resource and talent concerns. In addition, many in the sector are managing exciting new advancements incorporating artificial intelligence, virtual reality and 3D printing to both products and manufacturing.

KPMG’s Life Sciences team combines broad technical experience with deep industry knowledge to deliver issues-based support that is both timely and relevant. With 108 partners and over 4,000 people, the firm operates from five offices located across Ireland in Dublin, Belfast, Cork and Galway. We have vast experience of working with a wide range of medtech clients, many of whom have chosen Ireland as a base for European expansion.

Our success is based on understanding the pressures faced when looking to set up a business in a new jurisdiction or indeed to ensure continued high performance at an existing site. We combine deep industry expertise with efficient support and advice across the complete range of audit, tax and advisory services. We provide a pragmatic and cost-effective assessment of the key business issues including examining the most beneficial corporate and operating structures available; the potential for maximising taxation reliefs; fundraising, acquisition and sales of businesses, preparing for and dealing with cyber security threats, advice on employee remuneration issues together with ensuring that investors continue to receive timely, proactive and relevant advice.

We look forward to meeting everyone at the Medtech Rising conference and to continuing to support businesses in the medtech sector
