Restore a De-registered CC/Company
1. Why will a CC/COMPANY be de-registered?
The most common reason for a CC/COMPANY being de-registered is for non compliance towards annuals returns. When annual returns are not submitted over a period of time CIPRO/CIPC will come to the conclusion that the CC/COMPANY is not in business anymore and de-register the CC/COMPANY.
2. What does it mean if a CC/COMPANY is de-registered?
In essence the CC/COMPANY is removed from CIPRO's database and are not allowed to trade any further under the registered name or number. Bank accounts can be frozen etc. The status of the CC/COMPANY will also reflect as "DEREGISTRATION FINAL"
3. Can a CC/COMPANY that has been de-registered be restored?
