    I'm in the process of doing a voluntary strike off via CH (Spongebob plan ). The first Gazette says 2 months from the date (end of Jan) so should be struck off the end of March.

    HMRC are the only potential creditor but they haven't objected yet. When do they normally object?

    Sorry I meant when in the 2 months where it's pending, at the start or anytime? Im trying to work out if they are likely to object now there is only 4 weeks to go.

    You’ll get a confirmation letter in the standard brown envelope,
    The online status will state that the process of dissolution cannot be reversed.

    Hi I am in the process of striking off my ltd company also.. my new accountant told me to strike off the old company, it was getting messy, contracts going wrong, some bad payers etc.. which I did in jan.. the first notice in the gazette was published 22nd of jan and says 2 months from the 22nd the company will be dissolved.. no final accounts were submitted.. vat was deregistered and final 0 return sent around sept last year.. however today I received the ct603. what should I do? ignore it and hope its dissolved without objection? my new company is pretty much the same name except it has north west rather than (NW) in the company name title. do I have anything to be worried about? also how did you get on contractor75? if its dissolved in exactly 2 months from the 22nd of jan I ve literally a few days to go (is it really to the letter in terms of dates?) I ve had no brown letter saying dissolution can not be reversed as stated above?
    thanks

    Think of the 2 months more of a guide and a minimum.
    Keep watching companies house website for the company - the status there will change once dissolved.

    Did you pay the corporation tax/VAT etc. that was due before applying for strike off or have you just committed an illegal act?

    It’s simply the absolutely classic waiting game!
    Once dissolution is going through you’ll get a message stating that the process cannot be reversed.
    As for HMRC objections and timescales I’m not sure at all where this business of within the last 2 days has come from?
    More importantly if they do object and as highlighted lots of times elsewhere on this site eventually Companys House will enable and allow full dissolution anyway; its the classic waiting game!

    Still no objections and 2 months have passed, still showing Active proposal to strike off though. But since the 2 months have passed I assume objections can't be placed now?

    Don't bet on anything until the business has been dissolved a full 20 years.

    No, objections will be until dissolved, however someone who wants to resurrect has a certain time to do it.
    Say someone who REALLY objected but were just too late.

    If they really wanted to object they would have done it when it was in the Gazzette. It will cost them to resurrect and not worth it if the company had no funds.

    True.
    But do they know that? ????

    Seriously, the odds of them choosing to resurrect under this government may be tiny. Under a later government, who knows?
    Until its dissolved don't bet on anything. Afterwards, maybe virtually no chance for smaller businesses without any new information or known problems.

    If they know there is an outstanding Directors Loan, the Director is broke at the moment but in 5 years time is doing well, they might reconsider if it's worth going after him.

    No directors loan on record

    should have been disclosed on the last accounts filed with HMRC/Companies House.

    Anyway the £9K+ needs to be disclosed on your Tax Return as income if the company gets struck off.
