Voluntary Striking off a Business Name

Filing an application for strike off

If the owner of a Business Name ceases to carry out business activities in the name of the business name, must notify the Registrar of Companies within one month of ceasing to conduct business.

You can submit the form for changes to the business name's particulars (form EE2), by hand/post, accompanied by:

  • the fee of forty euro (€40) and an additional fee of twenty euro (€20), in case you wish to accelerate the procedure.

The fees are payable in cash, by cheque, via an account maintained with the Department of the Registrar of Companies or by bank transfer.

You are advised to refer to the main criteria of review and most common reasons for rejection, so as to acquire a better understanding of what is required and to facilitate the process further. 

Provided that the Registrar of Companies is satisfied that all, relevant to the circumstances, legal requirements have been met he will proceed with striking off the business name from the register and published its strike off in the Gazette.

In the event that the business name requires proof of the change made in the business name's register, it may request to Obtaining Business Name’s Certified Copies.
