General Information
Corporate Dissolution - Kit

This kit provides tools and guidelines for dissolving your corporation.

The act of dissolving a corporation is generally based on a decision to stop the active business activities of the corporation.  Dissolutions can be voluntarily adopted by the shareholders and directors of a corporation.  Dissolutions can also be involuntary.  Involuntary dissolution may be caused by the revocation of the corporate Articles of Incorporation by the state for failure to file the proper reports, pay the proper taxes, or maintain a registered office and agent.  Bankruptcy of the corporation can also lead to involuntary dissolution of the business.



NOTE:  This kit includes materials generally applicable to corporations in any state.  However, there may be some state-specific rules or procedures for dissolution in your state.  Further, some states provide their own form of the Articles of Dissolution.  Please consult your Secretary of States website for specific information and form downloads for your state.

Notes and Procedures for Dissolving a Corporation


Dissolution, as a major event in the life of a corporation, requires both shareholder and director approval.  The action is generally initiated by the board of directors by an authorization and recommendation for dissolution, a proposal of a plan for dissolution, and a call for a special shareholders meeting.  The shareholders must then approve the dissolution plan by majority vote and order the secretary of the corporation to prepare and file the necessary Articles of Dissolution with the state corporation department.  

Upon acceptance of this document by the state, the corporation is officially dissolved.  However, a corporation is allowed to continue to transact business for a short period after dissolution in order to wind up its affairs, liquidate its assets, and distribute proportionate shares of the corporate funds or property to its shareholders.  During the period after the filing for dissolution, however, a corporation cannot transact business which is not directed towards winding up its affairs, such as entering into long-term contracts.  

A Dissolution Checklist is included below, showing the steps necessary for a voluntary dissolution of a corporation.  

Please contact your state corporation department or an attorney for details of state requirements in your jurisdiction.
