Company liquidation

Liquidation is the process in which the company winds up all its operations and sells its assets to repay its liability if any. When a company is not in a position to continue its business, the company liquidates. In UAE, the liquidation of the company depends upon the type of company and different rules and regulations for the Mainland, Free zone, and Offshore companies.

The liquidation of the Company in Ajman can execute by following the provisions of Commercial Company law. Also, the liquidation of the free zone and offshore companies is very easy as compared to the liquidation of the Mainland company as the Mainland company has to appoint a liquidator who will do the liquidation process.

Reasons for liquidation

To Liquidate a company certain procedures and conditions need to be followed in accordance with the regulations of the suitable authority. The liquidation of the company is divided into two categories i.e. voluntary or compulsory. There are many different reasons for company liquidation some of them mention below:

  • Expiry of license
  • Expiry of working duration is stated in the Article of association and article of Incorporation
  • Completion of goal/objective

Before liquidation, the company has to attain the consent of all the shareholders so that the company’s existence is brought to end. Along with this, the UAE company liquidation requires a liquidator company that executes the liquidation process and issues the certificate of liquidation.
