Changes to the company strike off procedure

Companies House has announced a change to the company strike off procedure which accelerates the process.  Under the old legislation the Company would be struck off not less than three months after publication of a notice in the Gazette and this has now been reduced to two months.  

This accelerates the process but also means that creditors will need to act quickly if they wish to raise any objection. The new rules apply whether the proposed strike off is initiated by the Company or Companies House.
