Business Dissolution

What is Business Dissolution?

Business dissolution refers to the process of dissolving a company's legal existence. The business owner(s) will end all operations and terminate the entity. Business dissolution is the final step in liquidating a company and bringing it to an end.

There are typically many actions involved in a business dissolution that must be taken care of to properly bring a business to a legal close. Such actions may include:

  • Settling debts
  • Liquidating or redistributing assets
  • Closing bank accounts
  • Negating contracts
  • Settling customer issues
  • Dividing assets between shareholders or business partners

Without handling business dissolution properly, the business owners could still owe taxes, annual fees, and other fines even after the business is terminated.
