The Companies Act 2006 which was effective 1 October 2009 has brought in a new provision for companies to apply for administrative restoration. This is simplified method of restoring dissolved company without having to go through court process. The cost of administrative restoration is much cheaper than going through Court restoration process which will cost you thousands of pounds.
Administrative restoration is only possible if the company applying for restoration had not previously applied for voluntary strike off. The company was struck off for less than 6 years and it was in business at the time of being dissolved.
Concise Accountancy provides company restoration service. Feel free to contact us if you require assistance in restoring your dissolved company.
Why Companies House strikes off active company?
Companies House will strike off companies where mails sent to their registered office repeatedly returned to senders or the companies have not filed any annual return and their statutory accounts are long overdue and the company officers failed to response to Companies House reminders. This happened when small companies used their old address as their companies registered office address. They were not aware or had forgotten that they have to inform Companies House of the new address.
Companies are reminded to file Form AD01 to Companies House if there is change of their registered office address to new location.
Who can help to ensure your company information is up to date with Companies House?
Small companies often used their accountants’ office address as their registered office address so that all the statutory mails can be sent there and their accountants can deal with the matters from Companies House and HM Revenue and Customs promptly.
In addition, your accountants will check your company information registered with Companies House when filing your annual return and your company accounts and they will advice you accordingly.
