In the continuing Government measures to support businesses during the Coronavirus pandemic Companies House has placed temporary pause on their processes for voluntary and compulsory strike offs from 21 January 2021 to 21 February 2021.
This is designed to avoid companies being adversely affected by the delays being encountered to processing correspondence as a result of reduced numbers of staff numbers.
Pausing the process will help provide companies with more time to update their records and help them avoid being struck off the register. It’ll also protect creditors and other interested parties who might have had difficulties in receiving notices or registering an objection, or whose objections have not yet been processed.
