IDEA FOR START-UPsWinding Up a Company
Winding up a company is a tedious, but necessary, procedure. Without doing so, you would need to annually meet the requirements of the Registrar of Companies (which means spending money on audit and compliances). The bigger reason you would want to do this, of course, is because it releases the assets and investments made by you.
A public accountant would be appointed by the court as a liquidator. The powers of the directors would devolve upon this person and he would be primarily responsible for accumulating all the assets of the company and paying off its debts. The surplus would then be distributed among the members.
