Important Information for dissolving a registered company

It is an offence to knowingly or recklessly provide false or misleading information. You are advised to read Section 4 and to consult the guidance available from Companies House before completing a DS01 form. If in doubt, seek professional advice.

Please read the following carefully before making a request with the Registrar to strike off an incorporated company:

Notify all parties

You must send copies of this application to all notifiable parties e.g. creditors, employees, shareholders, pension managers or trustees and other directors of the company within 7 days from the day on which the application is made. You must also send copies to anyone who later becomes a notifiable party within 7 days of this taking place. This applies from the day of application and before the day on which the application is finally dealt with or withdrawn. Please check the guidance notes which contain a full list of those who must be notified. Failure to notify interested parties is an offence which is punishable by up to 12 months in prison (for English or Welsh companies) or 6 months in prison (for Scottish or Northern Irish companies). It is advisable to obtain and retain some proof of delivery or posting of copies to notifiable parties. Withdrawal of striking off application by a company If the company ceases to be eligible for striking off at any time after the application is made, and before the application is finally dealt with, as specified in section 1009 of the Companies Act 2006, then the application must be withdrawn using form DS02 Withdrawal of striking off application by a company available from the Companies House website:
