Am I able to file an AD1 after the final gazette.

Required to submit an AD1 by company's house after the company has been dissolved.

Didn't find your answer?

Jan 11 2024 - submitted voluntary strike off form DS01.

Jan 23 2024 - First Gazette

March 21 2024 - Registered office address changed to the default comanies house address.

March 21 2024 - emailed them to ask why (no reply)

April 10 2024 - emailed them again (no reply)

April 10 - Final Gazette listed saying dissolved via voluntary strike-off with a date of 16.04.2023

April 11th - received a letter (dated March 22) to my home address requiring me to submit an AD1 or they will start compliance proceedings which could end up in prosecution.

Can I submit an AD1 for a company that has been dissolved?

BTW, it transpires we didn't renew the subscription for out registered office service - hence the default address.

The company does not exist. You cannot submit anything for a company that does not exist.

Hi Paul
Thanks for your comment - that's exactly what I thought. I'm just a bit hung up over the threat in the letter from CH (and that I actually overlooked the renewal of the registered office subscription) in light of the Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Act.

No. There is no longer a company or any officers
And why would you want to?

Hi
Thanks for your comment - that's exactly what I thought. My common sense tells me you cant file for a dissolved company but the threat in the letter had me questioning myself.

As others have said, no company so nothing can be submitted.

But, it may be worth contacting Companies House to clarify the position with them anyway. As there is the potential for directors to be prosecuted for failing to fulfil their duties (and not ensuring the registered office address was maintained properly would fall under that) there is still a risk of a director being on the wrong end of a lawsuit for this past error.

As emails have not been answered, try calling including a request for how you can get confirmation in writing there is no issue if they agree that is the case.

To be fair to Companies House, it is more a final warning that strike-off at the later date is unavoidable. Potentially gives a director a chance to avoid company assets going to The Crown if they can legally be removed beforehand.
