A common misconception when a company has ceased to trade is that it is no longer obliged to file any returns.
However, this is not the case. The company is obliged to continue to file tax returns with Revenue (unless the company has been de-registered) and also file annual returns with the Companies Registration Office (CRO). Failure to file timely returns with the CRO can result in penalties being incurred.
If the directors do not intend to trade through the company again, it is advisable to have it struck off the register.
How to Strike-Off a Limited Company
To this end, you will need to de-register the company under all tax headings effective from the date the company ceased to trade (if you haven’t already) and bring all taxes and CRO annual returns up-to-date. If this is a problem, we can help
From then there are three steps involved in having a company struck off the Register:
- Obtain a letter of no objection from Revenue;
- Advertise the strike-off in a daily newspaper published and circulated nationwide; and
- Send a director’s request to the CRO.
Perhaps you need to have your own company voluntarily struck-off or perhaps you are a professional practice with little experience in the voluntary strike-off process.
