Administrative Restoration Service - FAQ
Following the introduction of the new administrative restoration procedure by the Companies Act 2006, it is now possible, in certain circumstances, for a company to be restored to the register of companies without having to apply to the court.
A former director or member of a company may now apply to the Registrar of Companies to have the company restored to the register.
There are various reasons why a company may need to be restored, the most common one being where a company that is carrying on a trade is struck off for failure to file accounts or annual returns.
