Company Restorations by Court Order
At SAS Daniels LLP, we understand there are a number of reasons why a company needs to be restored to the Register of Companies and that in certain circumstances, this needs to be achieved by way of a court order. Whatever the reason may be, we are able to assist with your company restoration by court order. We offer a fixed price service which helps you restore the company whilst giving you the peace of mind that you will not be faced with an unexpected bill at the end of the process.
What’s the process of restoring a company?
You may be able to apply for a company restoration by court order if:
- You did business with the company;
- You worked for the company
- The company owed you money when it was dissolved;
- You were a shareholder or director of the company when the company was dissolved.
The first step is to review the Company Register and Filing History for the company to ensure that the above criteria are met, and that there are no obvious issues with restoring the company.
Following this, and after liaising with you, we will prepare and draft a Part 8 Claim Form and supporting Witness Statement(s) to be filed at Court. By instructing us to draft these documents, you can have the confidence that all the required information will be included and accepted by the court.
Once the Claim Form has been issued, we will serve the issued Claim Form and signed Witness Statement(s) upon the Registrar of Companies and Treasury Solicitor.
The next step will be to await a response from the Treasury Solicitor. We will liaise with the Treasury Solicitor on your behalf to expedite the process as much as possible. The Treasury Solicitor’s response will set out the requirements of the Registrar of Companies in order for it to be in a position to confirm that it has no objection to the company restoration by court order. Once these requirements are received, we will act promptly by obtaining and submitting the required documents to the Registrar of Companies whilst also confirming this in writing to the Treasury Solicitor.
We will then liaise with the Treasury Solicitor again to obtain a letter confirming they have no objection to the restoration of the company. Once this letter is received, we will file it at court.
At this point the court may list a hearing, in which case we are able to attend on your behalf in order to obtain the sealed order. Our solicitors have vast experience attending these hearings, and you can rest assured that they will be able to not only attend but achieve a positive outcome, without you having to attend yourself.
Whether it becomes necessary to attend a hearing or not, with our assistance you can have the confidence that at the end of the process, you will receive a sealed order that the company is restored to the Register of Companies.
Once a sealed order is received, we will send a copy of this to the Registrar of Companies. The company will then be restored to the register and deemed to have continued in existence as if it had not been struck off.
