A close corporation may deregister and so bring the entity’s legal status to an end. Once deregistered you may conduct your business in a different form, but will need to transfer all assets and liabilities to the new format before the final deregistration. The close corporation will also be deregistered in the event of non compliance of the submission of annual returns or if the Companies Commission has reason to the believe that the close corporation is not trading, has been inactive for 7 years or will not trade in the near future. Full deregistration can take approx 3 - 6 months.
