All About Liquidation Services in Dubai

We provide company liquidation services to all offshore, mainland, and Dubai Freezone company formations. Let us have a look at some of the important information regarding the same.

Types of Liquidation in Dubai & UAE

Company liquidation is of two types:

1. Voluntary Liquidation

In a voluntary liquidation, the company owners will attempt to close the company because they have no funds to pay the creditors. Priority is provided to creditors in this form of liquidation.

2. Compulsory Liquidation

Compulsory liquidation is the form of liquidation of the corporation that is put out by a court order. Here, the company's properties are allocated to creditors and contributors based on priority claims.

Why is a Company Liquidated?

The following are some of the factors for the liquidation of a company:

  • The company no longer possesses assets.
  • The company is impotent to pay creditors.
  • The company has no liquidity or cash to fund its existence.
  • The company is unable to get any form of revenue or business.
  • The company gets revenue, but the losses are way too heavy.
  • The directors opt to vote for liquidation traditionally at the board meeting.

What if you do not want to liquidate your company, but the company cannot continue?

There may be a scenario in which you may not want to liquidate your business, but you cannot continue with the company. In such a system, the license-providing authority assumes that any corporation must be allowed not to liquidate and still have a reasonable chance to keep the business on track.

It is why the Dubai DED has the ability of a company to "freeze" a license instead of abandoning it. While freezing a permit, the company's employees and establishment cards will still be abandoned. The company may always recommend its activities after the freeze period is over by just regenerating the cards and licenses.
