To terminate a limited company, the applicant must formally apply to the Inland Revenue Department for a notice of no objection to deregistration of the company. The applicant must be a director of the company or a hired accountant, secretarial company, or a law firm. If applying as a nominee, he must submit a letter of authorization from the director. The application method is to submit a completed application form IR1263 with a $270 fee to the Inland Revenue Department by post or in person. The Inland Revenue Department does not accept fax or email submissions.
If the Inland Revenue Department determines that the limited company has no tax matters to follow up and no tax owed, it will agree to issue a notice of no objection to deregistration of the company. The applicant can apply for formal delisting from the Companies Registry with this notice. However, if the Inland Revenue Department does not agree, the applicant will be notified of the unfinished tax matters and unpaid taxes. After the applicant has processed it, the lower part of the notice can be filled in and the Inland Revenue Department will reconsider.
