How to Restore a Limited Company. Restoring an Irish company to the register of companies at the Companies Registration Office can be a complex and lengthy process.

Restoration of a Company Dissolved for Less than 1 Year

Where a company has been dissolved within one year we will draft and prepare the necessary documents in order to restore the company to the register. In order for us to do this the company must:

(a) make the application for restoration within twelve months of being struck off.

(b)file all outstanding Annual Returns including paying late filing fees, penalties and charges.

c) not have allotted any shares during the period covered by the Annual Returns which are being filed.

(d) make an officer of the company available to be physically present at the CRO in order to await the processing of the relevant documents and attend to any queries and or amendments arising during the company restoration process.

The company restoration application process at the CRO on the day may take anything up to 4-5 hours or more. As part of our administration services, an officer from the company seeking restoration will be required to attend. BCF will be pleased to advise on the attendance process together with guidance during on all of the relevant documents and queries that may arise during the course of the company restoration process. Upon the restoration of the company to the register we will arrange for the company to be provided with a Certified Print Out from the CRO's records indicating the company's legal standing as being "normal".

Please note that our fees relating to company restoration work do not cover late filing fees, penalties, charges and or accounting referral work.
