End or Restart a Business Corporation

 

Strike off

If an annual return is not received within 30 days from the date on the final notice correspondence, the business corporation will be struck from the Register of Corporations. Corporations that carry on business without being on the Register of Corporations do so contrary to The Business Corporations Act.

    • Select ‘file’.

    • The summary screen within the application will provide an overview of your registration.
If the corporation has been struck for more than one year, a name search including the fee is required.

  2. The corporation has no property and no liabilities and is dissolved by special resolution of the members of each class whether or not they are otherwise entitled to vote
  3. Or, when the corporation has distributed its property and discharged its liabilities pursuant to special resolution of shareholders of each class whether or not they are otherwise entitled to vote.
