Abstract We report on magnetoresistance, Hall effect, and quantum Shubnikov–de Haas oscillation (SdH) experiments in NbIrTe$_4$ single crystals, which was recently predicted to be a type-II Weyl semimetal. NbIrTe$_4$ manifests a non-saturating and parabolic magnetoresistance at low temperatures. The magneto-transport measurements show that NbIrTe$_4$ is a multiband system. The analysis of the SdH oscillations reveals four distinct oscillation frequencies. Combined with the density-functional theory calculations, we show that they come from two types of Fermi surfaces: electron pocket E$_1$ and hole pocket H$_2$.
