How do I strike off a company online

Query re new online system for striking off

Didn't find your answer?

I have a small company client that has ceased trade & distributed assets etc and the directors now want to strike off the company from the register. In the past I have used the manual form but it is a bit tiresome that it has to be sent around the various directors and you need a cheque. I thought I would try the new online system which involves emailing the directors & you can pay online, which should be a lot easier.  However, having got the link from Company House it appears that my webfiling log in & password don't work for this & I need to reregister. Is that right - I would then have a Companies House log in & password for webfiling, a presenter id etc for filing accounts from my software, yet another password etc for my companies house account plus now a fourth for striking off.  The fee to Companies House is £8 rather than £10 but I am wondering if the £2 saving is worth it. Do others use the online system & find it good?

You can use the same details to re register. It makes no difference. Did it myself just yesterday.

Just to add, the acceptance to strike off took 24 hours. I think that in itself shows its better to use online rather than paper.

I seem to have to register every time I want to use it. It's still better than the paper form though.

I've had three clients claim they've not received the email.

If it were just one, I'd raise an eyebrow quizzically but three seems to be forming a pattern.

I used it yesterday to strike off an LLP and it seems to work quite well.

I'm not saying that clients never get an email.

Just that three haven't.

It's you who enters the email address for the client. Are you checking that you are entering one they still use?Often one with the business name has been abandoned by the time for strike off.

Well, they answer my emails OK so I'm guessing they still look at it occasionally.

CH has some good easy systems. However, not impressed with this one.

I tried it (had to set up another CH account!) and got stuck with client authorisation somewhere.

Had to chase my £8 to get it back.

I'll stick with paper DS01. Generally one or two directors and can get signed quickly. I PDF the completed PDF and email to client to print, sign and return to me. I have a standard letter to CH.

I'm sticking with paper.
