During the life of a business, there might come a time when you consider dissolving your company. Various reasons can lead to this decision, such as retirement, the need to reorganise a group of companies, internal conflicts, lack of profitability, or even bankruptcy. If you are currently thinking of striking off your Malta company from the Malta Business Registry, Fairwinds Management Limited can efficiently handle the dissolution process for you.

Understanding Company Dissolution

Company dissolution, or company liquidation, is the process of bringing a business to an end and distributing its assets to claimants. It’s a legal procedure that involves the company ceasing its operations, settling debts, and distributing any remaining assets. Once the company is dissolved, it can no longer trade or engage in any business activities, and its name becomes available for use by a new business owner.

The Process of Company Liquidation

The process of dissolving a company in Malta involves several critical steps that must be carefully managed to ensure compliance with local regulations. Here is a detailed look at the necessary steps:

  • Deregister from VAT
  • Deactivate PE Number
  • Cancel Any Business Licenses
  • Pay Creditors
  • Fulfill Outstanding Social Security Obligations
  • Ensure All Tax Returns Are Filed
  • Close Bank Accounts
  • Finalize Any Pending Audits
  • Cancel Company’s Entry in the Business Registry
