If a shareholder, director or creditor of the company is aggrieved at the company’s strike off, we can apply to the Registrar of Companies for the restoration of the company within 12 months of the strike off. Provided that the Registrar is satisfied that all outstanding documents have been filed and all outstanding fees paid, it can be restored to the register.

When the Registrar restores the company to the register, the company is deemed to have continued in existence as though it had not been struck off.

After the 12 months have expired, any member, officer or creditor of the company can apply to the High Court to have the company restored to the register. Where the Court is satisfied that it would be just to restore the company to the register, the company is deemed to have continued in existence as though it had not been struck off.

Where your company is struck off, we can make an application to the Registrar of Companies to have it restored to the register. The dissolution is the date of publication in Iris Oifigiuil of the notice striking the company name from the register.

Where your company is struck off under section 12A Companies Act, we can make an application for restoration. All outstanding returns must be filed. Annual returns submitted for years 2000 onward must be accompanied by audited accounts. In addition, written confirmation from the Revenue Commissioners that all outstanding statements required by section 882 Taxes Consolidation Act 1997 have been delivered to them.

A company can use the FastTrack process for restoration, provided a director or secretary presents himself to the Companies Registration Office and remains in the office until such time as all documentation has been examined and processed.
