Process of Striking-Off a Company
Upon approval of a strike-off, a Striking-Off Notice will be sent to the company at its registered office address, to its directors at their residential addresses and to IRAS, within 14 days of the receipt of the strike-off application.
A period of one month is given in the Striking-Off Notice to anyone who may wish to raise any objection to the application.
After the one-month period has expired, a notification of the intention to strike this company off the register in two months’ time will be made in the Government Gazette. Any interested person can still raise an objection to the application during this two-month period.
After the two months have expired, a final notification will be made stating that the company has been struck-off the register. The date that the company is struck-off will also be stated in the final notification.
The entire striking-off process takes about four months in total.
