Conclusion and Next Steps


Are you a Company Director or Company Secretary in the UK? If so, you have the legal obligation to maintain the companies accounts and records with Companies House (England and Wales). It is very easy to open a limited company in the UK, but there is less guidance available on how to close it down. This course is for those out there who wish to CLOSE their limited company. Perhaps you've been sitting on a dormant company for a while and want to close it down. If you've not been trading, then you may no longer have the need to keep the company going. Closing down the company reduces the paperwork for you and its one less thing to remember to have to do.

This course guides you through the process in simple steps and we show you exactly what to expect when you close down a company - the letters, the online status and what you need to do, so that you do things correctly.

The course tutor is at present a Finance Director for approx 12 UK limited companies and has closed down several in her time. Lisa Newton BA MSc has a degree in Accounting with Marketing and an MSc in Investment Management.

What does study method mean?

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
