Dissolve Incorporated Company

One of the most important elements in winding down your existing corporation is to file Articles of Dissolution for your Incorporation.

By filing the Articles of Dissolution, this puts an end period to the operation of the business and can be used to notify Revenue Canada for tax purposes, including corporate tax, HST and payroll accounts, along with closing any bank accounts, or any related third parties who should be notified of your closing operation.

We take you through step by step in closing your corporation. Fill in the easy online application to begin the process. We will email you step by step, as we process the dissolution on your behalf. With over 25 years of experience in assisting individuals to close their business, we will ensure that the ending of your business is as easy as possible.
