Liberia - Company Restorations

We can restore liberian companies that have been Struck Off the Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry. When your Liberian Corporation is Struck Off, the status certificate will say the Corporation ended legal existence as a Liberian Non-Resident Domestic Corporation upon annulment by the Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Once your Liberian Corporation is restored to the register it is deemed never to have been annulled and deemed to have been in continued existence.

Reinstatement of Annulled Corporation

An annulled corporation must send the request to the Minister of Foreign Affairs to apply for reinstatement and the decision as to whether the company is reinstated as at the Minister's discretion. When the Rescission of involuntary dissolution is granted, the corporation is restored as an active corporation in good standing as if the annulment had not taken place.

We can restore Liberian corporations that have been annulled, we complete the following during the reinstatement process:

  • Your corporation will need to pay all of the government fees due at the time of annulment
  • It will have to pay all of the fees it would have paid as if it had remained active
  • It will have to pay a reinstatement fee to the Liberian Registry
  • It will have to pay a re-acceptance fee to the Liberian Registered Agent
  • We complete a Petition for Reinstatement/rescission letter - A copy of the Articles of Incorporation for your corporation and of any other document filed with the Registry over the life of the corporation prior to the annulment must be included with the Petition for Reinstatement
  • The Petition for Reinstatement is acknowledged before a notary, after which it is authenticated by a Liberian consul
  • We have to advise the Liberian registry of your reason for requesting a rescission of involuntary dissolution
  • A shareholders resolution is prepared and a certified copy of the shareholders resolution sent to the registry

Liberian legal entities are governed by the Liberian Associations Law (1977, as amended through 2002), which contains the Business Corporations Law, the Limited Liability Company Law and the Private Foundation Law.

Although the Proclamation of Annulment remains in the public record, the corporation is restored as an active Liberian corporation as if the annulment had not taken place.

The corporation will need to pay all of the fees due at the time of annulment. It will have to pay all of the annual fees it would have paid as if it had remained active:

  • In general $450 per year
  • It will have to pay a reinstatement fee of $5,000
  • It will have to pay a re-acceptance fee to the Registered Agent of $500.
  • It will have to complete a rescission letter
  • Administrative Strike Off

    The Liberian Corporate Registry, acting on behalf of the Registrar of Corporations and the LISCR Trust Company may begin proceedings for an administrative strike off if your company does not adhere to certain rules, regulations and requirements.

    The Registrar may strike your company off the Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry for a number of reasons including:

    • Your company has not maintained a Registered Agent in the Republic of Liberia - the agent all non-resident Liberian corporations is the LISCR Trust Company at 80 Broad Street, Monrovia. Penalties for failure to maintain a registered agent are detailed in Section 11.3 of the Associations Law and include revocation of the Articles of incorporation/Annulment
    • Failure of your company to pay its annual fee or a late payment penalties

    Failure of your Liberian company to maintain a Registered Agent will result in Annulment (involuntary dissolution) by the Registrar. Failure to pay your annual registration fee will cause your corporation to fall out of Good Standing and the Registrar will not accept filings on behalf of the corporation until it has been restored back into Good Standing.

    Voluntarily filed Articles of Dissolution

    If your Liberia corporation voluntarily filed Articles of Dissolution and would like to restore the company, the fees are significantly less. A Corporation will need to complete the following to revoke the dissolution:

    • The corporation will need to pay all of the fees due at the time of dissolution
    • It will have to pay all of the annual fees it would have paid as if it had remained active
    • It will have to pay a reinstatement fee to the Liberian registry

    To revoke the dissolution, we prepare and submit documents to the Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry.
