Winding up/Dissolving/Liquidating A Business In Europe?

For various reasons – a company director may decide to wind up/dissolve or liquidate their business. Unless it involves a transfer, winding up a business usually includes the following steps:

    • Ensuring that the body which registered the business in the first place cancels the business licence or chamber of commerce/companies house register
    • Social security and tax obligations are paid
    • Selling off company stock
    • Settling any outstanding business debts or liabilities

Procedures to wind up a company fall within the authority of each EU country and vary from one country to the other. We will describe stages of closing a company in each country in Europe throughout the website. Effectively, if needed, we can close, liquidate or dissolve a Limited Liability or Public company in any country in Europe thanks to the contacts we have with our sister website Open A European .

How do we help you?

Each case will be considered individually and where a case is straightforward we may be able to apply a fixed fee in the same way as we apply this to opening a European company. However, we realise that in the case of outstanding assets and liabilities there may be an element of time and expense involved. In this way, we charge on a time spent basis according to requirement and complexity.
