The Companies Act 2006 has brought in a new provision for a limited company to apply for administrative restoration. This is simplified method of restoring a dissolved limited company without having to go through a court process.
The cost of administrative restoration is much cheaper and affordable compared to going through Court restoration process.
Administrative restoration is only possible if your limited company had not previously applied for a voluntary strike off and your limited company was struck off for less than 6 years and it was in business at the time of being struck off.
