If a company doesn’t meet these conditions, you’ll have to voluntarily liquidate your company instead. When you apply to ‘strike off’ your company, there are certain steps to follow.
· Intimate your plans to interested parties and HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) regarding company strike off.
Ø Prepare and File your final statutory accounts and company tax return, to HMRC stating that these are the final trading accounts and that the company will soon be dissolved. You don’t have to file final accounts with Companies House.
You must keep business documents for 7 years and copies of its employers’ liability insurance policy and schedule for 40 years from the date the company was dissolved.
To apply to strike off your limited company, you must send Companies House form DS01 which must be signed by a majority of the company’s directors. You should deal with any of the assets of the company before applying and it costs £10 to strike off a company.
You’ll get a letter from Companies House if you’ve filled in the form correctly and your request for the company to be struck off will be published as a notice in your local Gazette. If nobody objects, the company will be struck off the register once the 2 months mentioned in the notice has passed.
