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.

Restoring the company to the register can enable it to continue trading and to own all of its assets and property as if it had never been struck off or dissolved.

There are certain restrictions on making an application for administrative restoration - see our Administrative Restorations FAQs for more details.
