Winding up and liquidation of companies

Liquidation is a way to wind up a legal entity, most often trading companies such as limited companies, general partnerships, joint-stock companies, limited partnerships (s.r.o.; v.o.s.; a.s.; k.s.), and civil society organisations. We inform the client about its course during the entire duration of the liquidation and at the same time pay attention to confidentiality and speed.

Company liquidation phases

In simple terms, liquidation of a company can be divided into three phases:

  1. Winding up and liquidation, designating a liquidator and announcing the changes in the Commercial Gazette and the commercial register of the competent registry court. The company is required by law to use the words ‘in liquidation’ in the course of its business.
  2. Completion of liquidation and preparation of financial statements along with remarks concerning the period of liquidation.
  3. Striking the company from the relevant commercial register and preparing the liquidator’s final report, along with a plan to distribute the residual value and a tax return for the period of liquidation; consents must also be obtained from the relevant tax authorities in respect of tax arrears.
