Company restoration by Court Order is required when a UK company itself has applied to be struck off, or is not eligible for an administrative restoration or wishes to be restored for a limited purpose and will be struck off again.
Generally, any of the following may make an application for restoration:
- Any former director, member, creditor or liquidator
- Any person who had a contractual relationship with the company or who had a potential legal claim against the company
- Any person who had an interest in land or property in which the company also had an interest, right or obligation
- Any manager or trustee of the company’s former employees’ pension fund
- Any other person who appears to the Court to have an interest in the matter
In order to restore the name of a company to the Register in the UK/NI, it is necessary to make an application to the Companies Court in the relevant jurisdiction. Application is made and served upon the Registrar of Companies and the Treasury/Crown Solicitor supported by an Affidavit from the applicant setting out the full facts and explaining the default.
