How can I dissolve my company?

To dissolve a company is the process of having it “struck off” the Companies Register subject only if it —- 

  • Has not changed its names, traded or sold off any stock within the last three months;
  • Is not threatened with liquidation; and 
  • Has no agreements with creditors, for example, a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA).

The entity can only be liquidated if it does not meet the above conditions. After the shareholders or owners decide to dissolve a company, Companies House requires that they follow the following process —

  1. Inform employees, managers, trustees, partners, and government stakeholders such as HM Revenue and Customs of your decision to close down. 
  2. Pay any outstanding debts and corporation tax obligations.
  3. Close business bank accounts, distribute any assets among the shareholders and ensure each pays the prerequisite capital gains tax.
  4. Ask HMRC to close the company’s payroll scheme.
  5. Deregister for VAT.
  6. Transfer website domain names.

The effect of dissolution means that the company ceases to exist. Therefore, you can only dissolve a company that does not have outstanding debts or obligations. Further, since the company ceases to exist, its assets will be transferred to the crown immediately after the dissolution. 

Ensure you preserve business documents such as employee records, insurance policies, bank statements, invoices, and receipts for 7 years after the company's closure. 

Having fulfilled the above requirements, you can complete form DS01 and submit them to Companies House alongside the board minutes containing the resolution to dissolve the company. 

Should Companies House find that you have fulfilled all the obligations, they will publish a Gazette notice which gives a chance to any stakeholders, such as creditors whose interests may be negatively affected, to object to the dissolution. 

If there are no objections, Companies House will dissolve the company three months after publishing the Gazette notice.

What do I do if my company is dormant?

Your company is dormant if it is not actively trading and has no income. If your company is dormant, you need to follow the following steps -

  • Notify Companies House - As soon as your company is dormant, file your confirmation statement and annual accounts, which should not contain any significant transactions for the previous financial year.
  • Notify HMRC - Write to HMRC citing your Company Name and UTR number. If your company is newly registered, inform HMRC in the letter that you do not intend to begin trading until further notice. If your company has been trading but has ceased, indicate the date the company was formed and the date you ceased trading in the letter.
  • Your company must file dormant company accounts and Annual Confirmation Statement with Companies House - You’ll need to file these two documents to companies house annually even if your company is dormant.
What are company formation documents?

Company confirmation documents confirm that your company exists as a separate legal entity. These are —

  • Certificate of incorporation
  • Share certificates
  • Articles of association
Give me a comprehensive company formation checklist UK
