Late filing penalties – closing down a company

A client trading through a ltd company ceased working because of a mental breakdown but seems unable to obtain a medical certificate. Company accounts were submitted very late, resulting in penalties which neither the company nor she can pay. No dividends were paid, the company owes her money.

She has now decided not to resume trading through this company and wishes to close it down. Presumably the penalties are the company liability and not hers? Please advise.
