Restoring a company to the register

We can assist you with the restoration of your company at Companies House

As part of our service to companies we are often asked to assist with the restoration of a company to the register of companies at Companies House.

There are a number of situations in which a company is removed from the register and needs to be restored but the most common is where the company was dissolved but it is subsequently discovered the company still had money or assets which need to be transferred out. Application can generally only be made by the directors of the company immediately before dissolution.

There are two ways to restore a company back to the register. The first is a procedural application to the registrar of companies. This is only available where the company was trading immediately before it was dissolved. In many cases, this qualification is not met and, in those cases, it is necessary to make an application to the company court and involve the Government Legal Department who act for the Registrar of Companies.
