What are the main reasons for dissolving a company?

If you consider dissolving your company, it is essential to consider the main reasons. Many factors can contribute to the decision. Still, the following are the main reasons why companies dissolve:


  • When a company no longer wishes to pursue future activities and would instead distribute the remaining assets to shareholders, it is called voluntary liquidation. This can be due to retirement, a change in the direction of business, unprofitable operations, or any other factors that might prompt Directors or Officers of said company to decide it’s time for them to move on.


  • When going through a challenging period financially and having trouble settling debts, sometimes the only way to restore order is to file for company dissolution.


  • When a company fails to file its financial documents in time.


  • The company has been in operation since its formation and was never profitable. The business model used by the company isn’t viable.


  • Team members are no longer interested in running the business.

How do you dissolve a company?

Dissolving a company is one of the most used legal methods to close a company down. This way, the company ceases to be a legal entity and is no longer protected by law. A liquidator is appointed to oversee the dissolution process.

Is dissolving a company the same as liquidation?

Dissolution is when a business is removed from the register of companies for being dormant, not trading. Liquidation is a formal way to close a company with assets and liabilities.

What happens if you close a Ltd company with debt?

If the company is insolvent, it can seek a voluntary creditors liquidation. This means that the company will no longer make new loans. It can also ask the courts for orders to pay creditors and settle all its debts and liabilities. If these aren’t met, the company will be forced into compulsory liquidation.

What is the most tax-efficient way to close a limited company?

The most tax-efficient way to close a limited company is to transfer your shares in it to another person. This is because the business itself is not liable for corporation tax. You can still be liable for income tax on any capital gains. You can still be taxed on dividends you receive from the business. The only exception is if the shares are transferred to a spouse or civil partner.

Do I have to pay Corporation Tax if I dissolve my company?

No, you do not. You only must pay Corporation Tax on the net profit that your company has made in the last year. This is known as your annual taxable income. If you have been paying Corporation Tax, this may be the time to stop. If you have been paying the higher rate of 20% and are an individual, you can claim back any tax you have paid over the last three years.

What happens to retained earnings when a business closes?

When a business closes, the retained earnings can go one of two ways. Retained earnings can either be used to pay off any outstanding debts or transferred to another entity.
