Striking off application
In order to close down a company you will need to fill out a DS01 form.
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)
You will then need to send the form to Companies House using the address shown on the last page of the form along with a cheque or postal order for £10.
Important Note: the company bank account will be frozen once the company has been struck off so make sure that you have paid the money out to the relevant places (e.g. corporation tax, dividends) and the bank balance is nil before you send this form to Companies House.
