The process of closing down a business and selling its assets and property to be divided among shareholders and creditors is known as company liquidation.

In the United Arab Emirates, dissolving a company is a lengthy and intricate process that calls for professionalism and knowledge. The process entails dealing with numerous authorities and other parties in order to pay off all debts, settle liabilities, and get approvals and requirements from the law.

In addition, in order to avoid a 10,000 AED late submission penalty, the UAE company needs to submit the de-registration confirmation to FTA within 21 days.


Steps to shut down the UAE company

Corporate bank account closure

The company's current UAE bank accounts have to be closed. To prepare the Liquidators Report, the Statement of Accounts for the previous fiscal year must be obtained. To further substantiate the account closure, you will require a Bank Account Closure Confirmation from the relevant UAE banks.

Clearance for immigration

The UAE company sponsorship for all active visas must be formally canceled. Additionally, all active UAE residence visas (employment, dependent, and family visas) sponsored by employees should be canceled or placed on hold.

Approval from the regulatory body

Depending on the company's operations, clearances might be necessary. For instance, in order to receive clearance if the company engages in trading, they must contact both the Chamber of Commerce and the Ministry of Customs.

Release from third-party obligations

Clearance is required for all utilities, including DEWA, DU/Etisalat, air conditioning, and any office space owned by the UAE company. If you are renting an office, you must get permission from the landlord and pay the entire rent amount.

Announcement of de-registration

Any legal entity must publish a 15-day newspaper advertisement notifying the public that the company is in the process of liquidation, depending on the jurisdiction in which your UAE company is registered. This can be posted online as well.
