We regularly assist directors and shareholders to restore their own companies to the Register. Most commonly, this requires to be done whether the company has been voluntarily dissolved, but money resting in the company’s bank account has been overlooked. If that happens, the bank will freeze the account, and will then transfer the money to the Crown.
Another situation can be where, owing to oversight, a company that is a commercial tenant is dissolved. The law in this area is complex (for instance, ELB Securities Limited v Love 2016 SC 77), but broadly the company loses any rights that it had under the lease when the Crown “disclaims” those rights.
If your company has been dissolved, and you require a court restoration, our dispute resolution solicitors will be happy to assist. We are usually able to offer a fixed fee for this service, and work closely with a legal advertising specialist to drive down your costs. Call us on 0141 221 1919, or fill in our online enquiry form.
