Company struck-off or closed voluntarily?
16 November 2015
Has your company been struck-off by Companies House for non-filing of certain documents?
A company will be struck-off for non-filing of the Annual Return or submission of the Balance Sheet. Any assets held by the company – viz., debtors, plant and machinery or property etc., will automatically pass to the Crown. These remain the property of the Crown until the company is restored. This requires completion of various documents including the application to the Crown Solicitors Office. After all required documents are lodged with Companies House, the company will be normally be restored within 3/5 working days.
Have you elected to have your company closed by voluntary strike-off, overlooking any bank funds or property still owned by the company (a frequent error by the Directors when closing the company they no longer require)
In such cases the funds and or property will pass to the Crown. Again we can provide the Statutory Declaration and all relevant documents to be presented to the High Court. After the Hearing, the Court will issue the Order to Companies House to restore company. This in turn will provide the release of bank funds or property for disposal. No attendance is required by the directors to attend the High Court on day of Hearing. Time required – normally 4/6 weeks from receiving all signed documents.
