6. What Companies House does with the strike off application

Companies House will examine the form and, if it is acceptable, will:

register the information and put it on the company’s public record

send an acknowledgement to the address shown on the form

send a notification to the company at its registered office address to enable it to object if the application is bogus

publish notice of the proposed striking off in the Gazette to allow interested parties the opportunity to object

place a copy of the Gazette notice on the company’s public record

If there is no reason to delay, the registrar will strike the company off the register not less than 2 months after the date of the notice. The company will be dissolved on publication of another notice in the relevant Gazette.
