If you no longer require your company, you can apply to voluntarily deregister it with ASIC by lodging a Form 6010. Deregistering a company will mean that it no longer exists as a legal entity and the ongoing obligations of company officeholders will cease.
Before you can apply to deregister your company, you must ensure that:
- All members of the company agree to the deregistration;
- The company is not carrying on business;
- The company's assets are worth less than $1,000;
- The company has paid all fees and penalties payable under the act;
- The company has no outstanding liabilities; and
- The company is not a party to any legal proceedings.
Patricia Holdings can prepare and lodge the Form 6010 on your behalf. We will prepare all documentation the day the order is received and lodge the Form 6010 electronically with ASIC as soon as a signed copy has been returned to us. We will also provide you with Directors and Members resolutions.
ASIC will then notify Patricia Holdings when they have approved the application (usually about 2 weeks), which we will scan and email to you immediately. The application to deregister the company will then be published in the ASIC Gazette for a period of 2 months. Following this, ASIC will deregister the Company.
