Company Closure

DS01 Form

Striking off application


Make sure you have paid your taxes to HMRC (e.g. VAT, PAYE, CIS, Corporation Tax) because if you owe them anything the striking off application will almost always be unsuccessful.

The company bank account will be frozen once the company has been struck off so make sure that your bank balance is nil before you apply for the company to be struck off.

In order to close down a company you will need to fill out a DS01 form either online (£8 fee - electronic payment) or via post (£10 fee - cheque or postal order).

The following information is required for the form:

  • Company name

  • Company number (which can be found by entering the company name on the Companies House website)

  • Name(s) and signature(s) of the director(s)
