    Does he plan to have the company removed from the register?

    If so, all he needs to do is file form DS01 with companies house. They won't want any accounts or annual returns once that form has gone in.

    You will need to file a CT600 with HMRC. You might get away with Writing them a letter saying the company had no income and thus has no tax liability, but I would double check with them first, as if they think they might be owed tax, they may block the strike off with companies house.

    If he plans on keeping the company, accounts and tax returns will need filing as normal.

    Dear Monsoon,

    Thank you for your reply, but he was running company for last two years in loss, and he dissolved in third financial year.

    What do you recon now?

    If the company is dissolved, it's dead. It can't file anything.

    If they sent him a letter, then it's not dissolved. Dissolved has a very specific meaning, in that the company has been dissolved at companies house. If by 'dissolved' you mean he's just not using the company any more, then that is totally different. It is important that your get your terminology correct.

    If the company is still active at companies house, then my first response stands. The issue is less about what Companies House want, but more about what HMRC will want.

    If he wants to get rid of the company he must file form DS01 at companies house, after which point they will not ask him to file anything. However he must have his affairs in order before then, especially finalising things with HMRC and dealing will assets of the company etc.
