The <Companies Act> describes the procedures for restoring a company that has been removed from the register.
For companies who have failed to re-register, the Registrar also has a discretion to restore any company which has failed to re-register under this act, and shall determine what notices or fees, if any, shall apply to such restoration. The Registrar has issued a guidance note regarding restoration in these circumstances, a copy of which is available here. Persons seeking restoration should complete this form and submit to the Registrar.
For overseas companies who have failed to file an annual return for more than 6 months, and who have been removed from the register, will be restored on the register on application by a director or a shareholder of that company. A fee may be payable.
