To do’s

  • Make sure that all franchise taxes have been paid. You will then need to issue a Certificate of Dissolution/Cancellation with the signature of you or someone else who has a signatory power.
  • When you first set up your company, a Certificate of Formation was legally granted to you. This time, in an event of dissolution of the company, a Certificate of Dissolution for Corporations or a Certificate of Cancellation for LLC will be drafted.
