Hi,

May be dealing with a company that is listed as:

"First notification of strike-off action in London Gazette (Section 652)"

What does this mean - that they are going bust or just closing down?

They were listed as this before - should i read anything into this?

Thanks

yes

Looking at the history, they've done it in the past as well.

My annual return comes at the worst time of year for me, when it's hectic from the moment I start, to the moment I fall over in a heap. Annoying thing is, it only takes ten minutes to file online, it's just not high on my priorities when it's so busy.

If a compny persitently fails to submit its statutory returns (the Annual Return or the Annual Accounts), Companies House MAY decide that the company is dead and will start the process of having the company struck off the Company Register.
To be honest, the company has to have been quite negligent to have allowed the situation to have got to that position.
The decision to have the company struck off is always published in the London Gazette and an outside interested party - such as a creditor - can apply to have the striking off procedure suspended. However, you have a time window of six months within which to file your objection to the striking off.

In most cases, striking off is initiated by the directors of a company when they have decided that they no longer want the company.

Looks like directors filing for strike off here, given that returns and accounts have been submitted in the recent history.

If you have credit extended to the company, I would suggest chasing it, and if it does not appear quickly, apply to suspend strike off.

Nah, look at the dates again, it's just because they haven't filed their annual return.

'09 they filed it in September, '10 was late, filed about two weeks after the striking off notice. I'll bet it's the same this year, they haven't filed an annual return since 12th Feb 2010, and given it was late last year, it's just late again this year.

Give it a couple of weeks, and you'll see the annual return pop up.
