End of Business relationship
It is no longer acceptable for companies to be naturally struck off at Companies House. The ‘natural strike off’ of a company, takes 3 years of none payment, at which point it is assumed that this company is no longer required and the company is therefore struck from the register. However, due to the penalties associated with the above, within this 3-year period, the company will incur significant arrears. As a company cannot be struck off whilst in debt, these penalties must be paid before striking off can be completed.
Gibraltar Annual Compliance
In line with the Anti-Money Laundering regulations, we complete compliance checks and update the records held at the Registered Office, to ensure your Gibraltar company meets its regulatory obligations and remains in Good Standing.
We conduct annual reviews to ensure that the due diligence documentation held on your company file are up to date.
The fee covers the additional time spent monitoring Know Your Client for the Company Directors, Shareholders and other connected entities, in addition to general matters concerning corporate governance and regulatory updates.
Our annual compliance is based on a Gibraltar company with standard Share Capital, two Directors and two Shareholders. If your company has a higher Share Capital or additional Directors or Shareholders, there will be additional compliance charges.
Shareholder & Directors Maintenance
Under the Companies Act, we need to ensure your company registers, including the directors register and shareholder register are maintained. An updated copy of the Directors register is held at the Gibraltar registered office of your company.
If there are changes to the Company Directors of your company, we will need to get updated due diligence records and file an updated directors register with the Companies Registry.
