Seychelles Company Dissolution – Closing a Seychelles Company

If you no longer require your company and wish to have it struck off the company register we can assist with a Seychelles Company Dissolution.

There are many reasons a company may need to file for dissolution beyond simply ceasing trading or maybe not even getting started.

Other reasons include a retirement, merging with another company or being acquired.

Irrespective of the reason it is very important to take the necessary steps to dissolve the company correctly, don’t just leave it and walk away.  As a Director you need to comply with regulations as well as protect yourself from potential risk and fines.
