I'm hoping for some advice on shutting down my ltd company.
The company had one employee (me) hasn't traded since December 2011 and the last accounts were posted recently on 30/04/2013.
I'm currently in permanent work and not taking a salary from the company.
The last corporation tax payment for 2011/2012 was made in January and all VAT, PAYE has been settled.
There's only about £3.5K left in the business, and I hoped it would be fairly straightforward (and cheap) to shut down.
From what I can see a DS01 form would need filled in, bank and HMRC informed, and a final set of accounts made up.
I'm assuming the final set wouldn't be hugely different from what was submitted a few weeks ago.
However my accountant feels that £500+vat is the cost to do this.
Any advice appreciated, I'm considering getting quotes from some local accountants, am I likely to get a better deal, or is £600 what I'd really expect to pay?
