Our simple 6-step process to dissolve a limited company.

Over the years, we have refined our process for dissolving a limited company. Our streamlined 6-step approach has been developed to make the experience stress-free for all our clients.

We believe in clear communication at all times and will keep you updated throughout the process.

1. Agreement and identification

Once we have received the signed agreement, payment & required identification, we will issue you with your welcome pack and a certificate of appointment.

2. Change of company address

Our priority is to change your company’s registered address to our office address which diverts your creditors to us and any company post from Companies House and HMRC will now be monitored and actioned by us. We will always communicate this with you where relevant.

3. Statement of affairs

A detailed handover will be completed with your appointed Client Manager. After reviewing this your manager will request creditor information from you and anything else they will need. We can then create your company statement of affairs. This is an integral part in the process that we complete for you. This document includes the company’s assets, summary of liability as well as the compiled creditor information.

4. Notify all creditors and HMRC

Before applying to close the company we must notify all necessary parties. This includes all creditors to make them aware of the company’s insolvent situation and intention to close as well as making them aware that we have been appointed by you. We ask that any contact is made to us, leaving you alone in the process, we will then submit the application to dissolve your company (DSO1) when the correct time has passed.

5. Deal with creditor correspondence

Closing a company with debts means we will prepare to deal with anticipated objections. Objections need to be dealt with in a correct way to guarantee a successful closure, this can be a timely process, but we will monitor this carefully and communicate with all parties.

6. Company closure

You will receive confirmation that your company has been successfully dissolved. This means that any outstanding company debts will be dissolved with the company.

Frequently Asked Questions

At Marchford, we understand that dissolving your company can be a stressful period, and you may have numerous questions. While it’s always best to discuss individual circumstances, we have compiled answers to frequently asked questions to help you make a decision.

Our team is always available to answer any specific questions you may have about dissolving a limited company. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you wish to speak to someone.

Closing a limited company involves more than just submitting a DS01. You are legally required to inform all of your creditors, including HMRC, about your intention to close your company.

You will also need to complete an accurate Statement of Affairs. If you have creditors, they may contact you at your home address, causing worry and stress.

When you instruct Marchford to dissolve your limited company, we change your registered business address to ours and deal with creditors on your behalf. You can trust us 100% with the closure of your limited company.

To officially dissolve a limited company, a DS01 form is used. Once filed and the formal process has been completed, Companies House will remove the business from their register, which means legally, the company will no longer exist.

A statement of affairs is a document that outlines all assets and liabilities that show on your company’s balance sheet. It is a very important part of the dissolution process and essential that it is completed honestly and accurately to make sure that your company is closed.

By law, you have to let HMRC and all creditors know that your business intends to stop trading. This can be complicated and we understand that they are not nice conversations to have. When Marchford closes your company on your behalf, we compose and send these letters for you, saving you huge amounts of time and heartache.

We change your business address for your peace of mind. This takes the pressure off you and you won’t have to worry about receiving stressful letters from creditors as we deal with all of the necessary correspondence for you.

Our goal is to dissolve your company within 90 days. The process can take longer if there is an objection, and the dissolution may be suspended. There is no need to worry if this happens; it simply means that we need to wait a little longer for your dissolution to go through. This can take several more months. We have never failed to get a company dissolved.

The price we quote to close your company will depend on your business’s financial situation. Our experienced business advisors will be able to provide you with a free, no-obligation quote once they have spoken with you.

It’s really easy. Just give us a call, message us on chat, or drop us an email. One of our experienced business advisors will get in touch, guide you through the process, and gather the information we need from you to begin the dissolution process. Once we have all the necessary details, we will provide you with a fixed-price quote. Upon your agreement and receipt of the required identification and payment, we will start the process of dissolving your limited company. You can then leave the rest to us, knowing that your company’s closure is in capable hands.
