Striking off old Company

Striking off company that was Restored in 2015

Didn't find your answer?

A former client, a Ltd Company, sold it's freehold property, declared profit, paid CT, distributed dividends and was struck off in September 2012. I was the registered Office as the directors moved to Spain.

Subsequent to striking off some ex-employees made claims for industrial deafness. The Company had been insured and I would send information to the director, who forwared on to insurance company and claims were duly processed. However in April 2015 one of the claiments solicitors decided to ask for the company to be restored.

Because company was restored by court order the process of  CO House striking off companies that do not submit annual returns(as they then were) and accounts has not happen.

I have phoned up CO House who have advised me to submit a DS01. But as I am not a director I cannot sign this form. I have had no contact with the past directors  for many years. I am in process of retiring and thought it might be advisable to get this ex-company struck off finally. Any practical advice from anyone would be welcome

Practical advice? Unless your address has been reinstated as the RO I would do nothing. Not your problem.

As the last RO, yes my address is the RO. I receive marketing mail.

As you aren't acting now for the company or the directors why bother to do anything ??
Tell Cos House to remove your address as the RO

Given the mechanical way Co House works it is a requirement that the company (Director or Co Secretary ) changes the the address. I have dealt with the change of address before for a company I had absolutely nothing to do with, and I had to hand deliver the change of address form to the correct address (and director) a few hundred yards down the road because CO House can only send out post to the address on their records!

I've had this happen in the past with some of my liquidated companies where the insurers reinstate post my release.

There is another form you can use to change the registered office again. Sorry I can't remember what it's called as my notes were left with my old firm.

That should solve your problem.
