Dissolving Your Business 101
Dissolving a business entity in New York is an important step for companies that are no longer in operation. Whether you’re closing down a Limited Liability Company (LLC), Corporation, or any other type of business entity, the process of dissolution is relatively straightforward.
Here’s what you need to know:
1. File the Articles of Dissolution: The first step in dissolving your business entity is to file the Articles of Dissolution with the New York Department of State. This document officially declares your business entity to be defunct and must include the name and type of entity being dissolved, the date of dissolution, and the name and address of the business’s registered agent.
2. Notify Creditors Once the Articles of Dissolution have been filed: You must notify any creditors of the business. This can be done by sending a letter or email to all creditors, advising them of the dissolution and providing details of how to proceed to collect any outstanding debts.
3. File Final Tax Returns: It’s also important to file any final tax returns for the business, including income tax, sales tax, and payroll tax returns. This is necessary even if the business has no remaining income or assets.
4. Close Bank Accounts: Finally, you must close any remaining bank accounts associated with the business. This includes any checking, savings, or credit accounts that may still be open.
