Company Restoration

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.  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".


High Court Restorations - Companies Dissolved for more than 1 Year

Where a company has been struck off the register for more than one year, an application to the High Court must be made in order to have that company reinstated.

The Company Restoration process entails the drafting and preparation of documents to liase with your Solicitor, Barrister, Chief State Solicitor, Companies Registration Office and Revenue Commissioner with regard to the High Court Restoration process.

All Legal Fees, High Court Fees, ancillary Fees and advised expenses must be lodged in advance of any High Court restoration work being carried out.
