Belize Company Restoration

Belize Company Restoration

Belize companies that have been struck-off the Register for failure to pay license fees can apply to be restored. We are able to assist and advise on the Belize company restoration process to put your company back on the companies register.

Once restored, the company is deemed never to have been struck off the Register.

In order to have a company restored all arrears, penalties and outstanding charges must be fully paid and the restoration fee to the Belize International Business Companies Registry.

Company Restoration Process

In order for a struck off company to be restored by the Belize Registry the following fees must be paid:

  • Pay all the annual government fees it would have paid as if it had remained active
  • Pay the government restoration fee to the Belize International Business Companies Registry
  • Payment of all unpaid Registered Agent fees

When all the fees and penalties are paid, the Registrar shall restore the company to the register and upon the restoration the company shall be deemed never to have been struck off.

A Belize company can only be restored by the registered agent on record, or the agent must be changed to a new agent undertaking the company restoration, which we will organise.

Re-registration of Companies under the 2022 Belize Companies Act

A company that is registered under the International Business Companies Act, shall have 12 months from the commencement of this Act within which to comply.
Companies had until the 28th day of November 2023 to re-register under the Act. The Registrar shall remove from the register any company registered under the International Business Companies Act, which fails to register

Effect of a company being Struck Off

A company struck off the register is unauthorised to trade and is not in Good Standing. The company still remains liable for all claims, debts, liabilities and obligations it has but the liability of the shareholders, directors, shareholders and agents remains limited.

Company Directors and Shareholders

When a Belize company is restored, the previous Directors, Company Secretary and the Shareholders are automatically assumed to have continued.
