About company liquidation

Make complex procedures easier by seeking professional assistance

Company liquidation is the process when the company shuts down its operations while the property and assets of the company are sold and distributed among its creditors and shareholders.

Winding up a company in the UAE is quite a complicated and long process which requires a professional approach and expertise. Procedure involves a large number of different authorities and third-parties to clear all the related dues, settle all liabilities, obtain legal requirements and approvals.

Additionally, the UAE company must submit the de-registration confirmation to FTA within 21 days to avoid the penalty of 10,000 AED for late submission.

Closing corporate bank account

All active UAE bank accounts of the company must be closed. It is mandatory to obtain the Statement of Accounts for the last financial year in order to prepare the Liquidators Report. Additionally, you will need to obtain a Bank Account Closure Confirmation from the respective UAE banks in order to prove the closure of the account.

Step 2

Immigration clearance

All running visas under the UAE company sponsorship must be formally canceled. Also, you should cancel or put on hold all active UAE Residence Visas run under any employee sponsorship (employment visa/ dependent visa/ family visa).

Step 3

Clearance from regulating authority

Depending on the activity of the company, clearances may be required. For example, if the company has a trading business, they must approach the Ministry of Customs and the Chamber of Commerce to obtain clearance.
