- there is sent or delivered to the Registrar a request that the company be removed from the <Jurisdiction> register on either of the grounds specified by—
- a shareholder or any other person authorised to make the request by a special resolution of shareholders entitled to vote and voting on the question; or
- a director or any other person, if the rules of the company so require or permit; or
- a liquidator sends or delivers to the Registrar the prescribed documents confirming that the liquidation of the company has been completed.
- Any company which fails to re-register within the re-registration period will also be removed from the register.
