Companies House has paused voluntary and compulsory strike off processes for one month, from 21 January until 21 February 2021.
With fewer people in its offices, Companies House says this has led to delays in processing correspondence, documents and forms.
As a result, the strike off process has been temporarily paused so that companies are not adversely affected by these delays.
Companies House says: “We’ll continue to publish first Gazette notices for voluntary strike off applications to minimise the impact on those who have applied to close their company - but we will not be publishing the second Gazette notice and striking companies off during this period. For companies on the compulsory strike off path, we will not be publishing first and second Gazette notices.
“Pausing our strike off processes will provide companies with more time to update their records and help them avoid being struck off the register. It’ll also protect creditors and other interested parties who might have had difficulties in receiving notices or registering an objection, or whose objections have not yet been processed.”
