When the company directors deem that the company is no longer required, they can voluntarily dissolve the company, which is known as a strike off.
If you decide this is the right move, please take the following steps to insure the process is followed correctly:
We may ask for proof of ID and address of one or more directors during this process to insure the legitimacy of the dissolution.
Why is it necessary to liquidate and close the bank account prior to filing the dissolution?
If your bank account has any cash available after the dissolution is passed, technically those assets belong to the Government. It could be seized property. Speak with your bank manager and inform them of the situation in advance to make sure there are no issues extracting the money.
I am being threatened with liquidation, or I am in the middle of a lawsuit, can I voluntarily dissolve?
No. You can be personally liable for attempting to dissolve your company under these circumstances. Please seek legal counsel before attempting to dissolve your company in either of these scenarios.
Are there any other reasons that could prevent me from voluntarily dissolving my company?
If you have sold stock or undergone a name change, wait until three months have passed before putting through your dissolution application. This is less likely to raise red flags with Customs House or cause delays.
