Dormant Company Accounts
Do you have a limited company that has ceased to trade? If so, then you have two options:

The CRO have their own filing fees for processing your annual return which is payable in addition to our fee. For more information on filing fees and late penalties, please click here. Contact us today for more information or see our FAQ.
*This fee level is for companies that are able to claim Audit Exemption – please contact us if you have any queries about this.

Advantages of keeping a dormant limited company alive vs. voluntary strike-off
Keep the company alive:
A dormant company is one that doesn’t trade and has no accounting transactions. If your company has traded or did have transactions during the year, then contact us for a quotation.
Also, to qualify for our €195 plus Vat fee, the company must be audit exempt. If your company is not audit exempt, then please contact us so we can refer you to our associate audit firm.
No. If your company is dormant, then a tax cancellation notice should be filed with Revenue under all tax headings effective from the date it ceased trading
There will then be no requirement to file any tax returns for periods after the effective date of cancellation
