Close LTD company


HI, everybody,

I need your advice please. one of my clients wants to close his limited company. this company has been set up for over a year, he hasn't submitted any year end accounts when his year end came, as his company didn't do any business during the year, doesn't even open a bank account. now, i'm going to close his company for him. do I still need to submit the year end account and tax return, even though there really has nothing to submit? if I have to, do I submit the year end account and tax return first, then apply for company closure or can I do them at the same time?

Many thanks,

Crina

Hi Crina
To double check - the company has not traded at ALL since it was set up? Has the Director notified HMRC of commencement of trade?

Does it have any assets/liabilities in its books?

Also - was a Companies House annual return or the newer confirmation statement done and if so - when?

Thoughts are my own/not to be regarded as official advice,which should be sought from a suitably qualified Accountant.

If the company hasn't traded and has no bank account just check with Companies House to see if it has been struck off already. On the basis it hasn't been struck off already [for not submitting accounts on time] and the company genuinely has not traded you just need to send in the company strike off form DS01 to Companies House with £10 filing fee and CHse will strike it off.
