Voluntary strike off and company dissolution

The directors of a limited company can apply for a voluntary dissolution if the Company is no longer required, and the company has been dormant (not traded) for at least 3 months.


The Company cannot apply for voluntary dissolution if at any time in the last 3 months it:

  • traded or carries out any business,
  • changed its name,
  • made a disposal for value of property rights that it held for the purpose of disposal for gain in the normal course of trading,
  • engaged in any other activities.

Before applying for voluntary dissolution the following should be informed:

  • any creditors,
  • members,
  • employees,
  • managers or trustees of an employee pension fund,
  • any directors who have not signed form DS01 (companies house application form),
  • Any organisation that has an interest in the Company’s affairs i.e HMRC.
