Apply to strike off and dissolve a company

Use this service to apply to close a public limited company, a private limited company, or a limited liability partnership (LLP).

For companies with multiple directors, more than half of the directors need to sign the application before it can be submitted.

It costs £33 and you'll need:

  • to sign in to or create a Companies House account, which is different from a WebFiling account
  • the company number
  • the company authentication code
  • an email address for each person signing the application
  • to pay using a credit or debit card, or a Companies House account

You can also sign in to this service to download a copy of your application after it has been submitted.
