Cancel Ontario Registered Business

To proceed with the cancellation of a business registration we’ll need all the details that you supplied in your original business registration so it would be advisable to have the original paperwork with you as a reference while you fill out the form below. If you no longer have a copy of your original registration, we can assist.

Cancelling your Ontario Registered Business has never been easier. Whether you have an existing Sole Proprietorship, General Partnership or Trade Name under an existing Corporation, we make the process simple and convenient.

If it’s time to move on to something new, an important item is to cancel the existing business.

The cancellation will take only a few minutes to complete and cancels the business with the Province of Ontario. This stops both the liability and tax implications associated with the business.

Once you have canceled your registration, you may also want to contact Revenue Canada, your financial institution and any other business contact who may want to review a copy of cancellation documentation.
