Before you start

Part of the process of removing your company from the Companies Register is giving the Companies Register a 'no objection' letter from us. This letter from us tells the Companies Office that we have no objection to your company being removed from the Companies Register.

Request a 'no objection' letter in myIR

You can request a 'no objection letter' by sending us a web message or letter in myIR.

Include the following in your web message or letter.

  • Your company’s IRD number.
  • The date and reason your company ceased to trade.
  • Which years the final returns will be filed for, and when they'll be filed if not already. If there is a provisional tax assessment in your company's final year, we'll process the return after the final provisional tax instalment date.
  • Whether your company has any outstanding returns or debts with us (including any amounts to pay from the final return) and what's being done about them.
  • Whether you’ve distributed assets to shareholders, directors, general or limited partners or any other person or entity for less than market value including debt forgiveness. We’ll need the relevant details.
  • What company assets there are and what'll happen to them.
  • A copy of the profit and loss account and the balance sheet up to the date of closure.
  • The name and contact details for any further queries.
  • Any other information you think is relevant.
