Company Dissolution Service

If a limited company is no longer needed,  the directors have the option to request its removal from the Companies House register. This process is called "Voluntary Company Dissolution". It involves formally closing the company and settling its affairs and assets, thus ending the company's existence.

As a company director, you can save both time and money by using our services for filing annual accounts and confirmation statements. By doing so, you can avoid the risk of late filings and the resulting fines and prosecutions. Additionally, our services help you avoid involuntary dissolution, which can negatively impact your reputation as a director. All of the work is done by us, and all you need to do is electronically sign the application to dissolve. We'll make every attempt possible to get over any issues or challenges that may come forth.
