Companies Act 2006

Restoration to the register by the court

1278.These sections bring together what are currently two separate procedures for a company to be restored to the register by court order (under sections 651 and 653 of the 1985 Act). The CLR recommended (Final report pages 227 to 229) that the two separate procedures be replaced by a single new procedure, which should largely be based on the precedent of the procedure under section 653 of the 1985 Act.

Section 1029: Application to court for restoration to the register

1279.The section sets out that an application may be made for the restoration of companies which have been dissolved, are deemed to be dissolved, or have been struck off under the various provisions set out in subsection (1). Subsection (2) sets out the persons who may make such an application.

Section 1030: When application to the court may be made

1280.At the moment, applications to the court under section 651 of the 1985 Act must be made within two years, and under section 653 within twenty years. This new section provides that the time limit for the new single procedure will generally be six years, although special provision is made (subsection (5)) for situations where an application for administrative restoration has been made and refused.

1281.Subsection (1) makes clear that there is no time limit where the application is for the purpose of bringing proceedings against the company for damages for personal injury.

Section 1031: Decision on application for restoration by the court

1282.This section sets out the circumstances in which the court may order restoration (including any case in which the court considers it just to do so) and provides that restoration takes effect when the court’s order is delivered to the registrar. It also requires the registrar to give appropriate public notice of the restoration.

Section 1032: Effect of court order for restoration to the register

1283.This section provides that the effect of restoration is that the company is deemed to have continued in existence as if it had not been struck off, and that the court may make such directions as are needed to place the company itself, and other persons, in the same position as they would have been had the company not been struck off. The court may also make directions as to the issues set out in subsection (4) to do with the company’s file at Companies House and costs.
