Expertise to guide you

Although a company strike off seems like an easy option we can help you meet your statutory obligations. If your business is no longer profitable or you are simply looking to cease trading and your company is surplus to your requirements a company strike off is one of the choices available to you.

If you do not have any creditors, striking off your company is a simple procedure. However there can be issues when a business owes money to HMRC, employees or suppliers as any of these creditors can raise an objection.
