Dissolving a Corporation or LLC

A Corporation dissolution or an LLC cancellation is the formal closure of your company.

Dissolutions requires Director or Shareholder approval prior to filing and the company must be up to date with all taxes and all annual reports filings with the state.

Without a formal dissolution, your company remains active in the state, even if you are no longer doing business and therefore subject to all annual reporting fees and corporate tax payments.

To start the process and to enable us to give a precise quote we require copies of the company documents, please upload: Company Documents

We will then inspect the company file at the Division of Corporations.
