The statutory procedures for dissolving a limited liability company are complicated and difficult. We are pleasure to provide professional services to help clients to solve the problems of this aspect.
In Hong Kong, a limited liability company may be liquidated under members’ voluntary winding-up, creditors’ voluntary winding-up and compulsory winding-up (winding-up by Court) depending upon own circumstance. However, if a defunct private limited liability company has ceased to carry on business or operation more than 3 months and no outstanding liabilities and agreed by all shareholders, it can apply for deregistration from Companies Register.
