Dissolutions & Restorations
The Companies Acts, 1963 to 2006 provide for the removal of companies from the Register of Companies. This is done primarily by means of liquidation or by way of voluntary strike-off. We can advise as to the appropriate course of action and assist in both cases.
If a company has been struck off the Register of Companies for failing to keep it's returns up to date (or for any other reason) and if an application is made to restore the company to the Register of Companies within one year from the date of strike-off, the company can be restored without undue formality. However, if more than a year has elapsed (but not more than twenty years), since the Company was struck off, it will be necessary to make an application to the High Court to seek an order to restore the company to the Register of Companies. We have successfully completed a number of petitions to the High Court to restore companies to the Register.
