HMRC Objection to Company Strike Off Letter

Licensed UK Insolvency Practitioners FREE Meeting for Company Directors

We can help with serious company debts, HMRC and creditor pressure, VAT/PAYE/Tax arrears, cash flow problems and raising finance.

Why have I received an objection to company strike off letter from HMRC's Local Compliance CT Operations department?


Open Quote
I have received notification that the company may be struck off the Register of Companies held at Companies House. I have objected to this action because, based on the information that I hold, the company has not fully complied with their tax obligations.

Until these arrears are settled and/or any outstanding Company Tax Returns are received, I cannot agree to the company being removed from the register.

HMRC Strike Off Rejection


If you have applied for your company to be struck off, HMRC may be thinking ‘they’ve tried to pull a fast one, here’. Your company owes HMRC overdue tax payments so it was highly unlikely that this strike-off would be accepted. It is highly probable that you didn’t apply for the company to be struck off the register in the first place so you may be wondering why this letter arrived? This could be due to the fact that Companies House have not had accounts filed for some time and as such, they have viewed the company as dormant and looked to strike it off themselves. In this case, HMRC have clearly objected to the strike off as they are owed money. In any case, a creditor could always apply for a company to be returned to the register if it was successfully struck off whilst owing them money.
