Why wind up a company?
I have just rung Companies House about a statutory notice for overdue accounts for a company that is shortly to be wound up. I understand that if we don't do anything the company will simply be removed from the register at no cost and with no penalty. This seems better than charging my client a fee to complete form DS01 etc.
Can anyone please advise if there is a down side to simply leaving Companies House to remove the company, rather than us winding it up, especially assuming ther's no surplus - obviously we will still ahve to tidy things up with HMRC.
