Voluntary Strike-Off – Close a company in Ireland

An Irish Company may be Voluntarily Struck off the Register provided that the company has no assets or liabilities i.e. the balance sheet is zero. This is the easiest and fastest way to close an Irish Company.

Company Bureau can carry out all the steps on your behalf to ensure the company is closed properly in the quickest possible timeframe. The required steps of a voluntary strike off in Ireland are as follows:

  • Make sure all Annual Returns and Accounts are up to date
  • Draft Directors statement that the company has ceased trading or has never traded
  • Draft minutes of Board Meeting for Directors and Shareholders consent to the dissolution of the company
  • Send Letter to Revenue requesting letter of no objection
  • Put Advertisement in Irish National Daily Newspaper
  • Preparation and filing of form H15 with the Companies Registration Office

Once the above is taken care of, it takes approximately 3 months for the company to be struck-off the register. We will of course notify you as soon as the company has been struck-off.

Company Bureau’s professional fee for closing an Irish Company (Voluntary Strike-Off) is only €289+VAT including the National Daily Newspaper Advertisement. For more information or to proceed with closing your Irish company today, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
