to Businesslegal company restoration service
Businesslegal restore UK companies that have been dissolved or struck off the UK Companies Register at Companies House. We can restore to the company roll, companies registered in England, Scotland and Wales. Many directors, creditors and shareholders think that once a company has been dissolved, wound up or struck off, that you cannot restore it to the register. This is a common misconception because you can.

Many companies are struck-off by the Registrar of Companies and the first the directors know about it is when the company bank account or other assets are frozen! The most common reason is usually for failing to file Annual Returns or Accounts. Frequently companies themselves apply to be struck-off, but overlook transferring credit balances from their bank accounts first, or forget about other assets.

All the assets of a struck-off company vest in the Crown (known as bona vacantia), so if that company wishes to continue in business, unfreeze a bank account or there is property it wants to keep or retrieve, it's not as simple as just incorporating a new company - the original company must be restored to the Companies House register.

Businesslegal makes many company restoration applications each year to restore dissolved and struck off companies to the Register, quickly and cost-effectively. We deal with both administrative restorations and restoration by court order.

The quickest procedure is administrative restoration and is done via an application made to the Registrar. This avoids having to make an application to the Court (Court Order Company Restoration), which is more expensive and is a longer procedure. However if the company was dissolved voluntarily by the directors, they cannot apply for administrative company restoration. It should also be noted that for administrative restoration filing of outstanding accounts and annual returns and payment of any late filing penalties is required.

If the company is to be dissolved as soon as any assets are realised then court order company restoration is recommended because, although the cost of restoration is higher, it avoids the need to file outstanding accounts and annual returns, and is therefore more economical.
