Before you close your company
What you need to know before you apply to remove your company from the Companies Register
Check the following before applying for your company to be removed.
- Your company has ceased trading, and
- All business debts have been paid.
Complete all outstanding filing requirements with the Companies Office
Before you close down your company, you need to ensure all of your company filing requirements are up to date with the Niue Companies Office. This information includes, director and shareholder details, address information and annual returns.
All of this information can be updated using the appropriate forms.
When the Registrar can remove your company
In June each year your company is required to file an annual return with the Registrar. The annual return is a chance for you to confirm the details of your company held by the Registrar.
Failure to file an annual return can lead the Registrar to believe the company has ceased to carry on business and there is no other reason for the company to continue existence.
