Business > Company Restoration

A company may be struck off for failure to file documents with Companies House or on the application of its directors. Sometimes it is discovered that it still had assets and an application needs to be made to restore the company to the Companies House Register so that the assets can be recovered for the company’s shareholders or its creditors.

Administrative restoration

If a company has been struck off the Register because it has failed to file returns or accounts with Companies House and it was trading at the time that it was dissolved, then provided that the Treasury Solicitor agrees, the company may be restored to the Register without an application to the court.  All of the documents required to bring the Companies House record up to date must be filed. This process is quicker and cheaper than an application to the court, provided that the documents are in order.

Restoration through the court

If the directors have applied to strike the company off and then they find money was left in a bank account, or there were some other assets owned by the company, an application will have to be made to the court.  The same is true if a creditor wishes to restore the company to the Register for the purpose of putting it into liquidation.  An application will need to be prepared and issued together with a witness statement explaining what has happened. If the Treasury Solicitor agrees that the company may be restored, then the company will normally be restored without the need for a court hearing, provided that the court is satisfied that the papers are in order. 

Our solicitors can assist in preparing court applications, deal with the Treasury Solicitor and represent clients in those cases where attendance is required.
