How to Dissolve Your LLC or Corporation

There are many reasons for dissolving an LLC or corporation. Make sure you do it the right way to avoid tax or legal issues by using our guide.

Sometimes, things don't work out as we envision. It happens to everyone, and if you decide you need to Dissolve your Wyoming or Delaware LLC here is a guide to how and how not to do it:

There are two types of dissolution, Administrative and Formal

Administrative Dissolution

Pros

Costs: $0 Dollars

Cons

  • You cannot re-open your company until you pay all fees that are owed
  • Your company will show as delinquent, which will be bad for reputation if anyone inquires online about your company
  • You cannot control what day your company officially closes
  • You cannot create another company with the same name, the name remains unusable for 2 years
  • You could incur up to a $250 fee to get your company reinstated, on top of paying back everything you owe

Recommendation

As you can see, this is an option, but there are an immense amount of downsides to having an Administrative Dissolution. You are handcuffed in terms of how you can proceed, and we do not recommend this option

Formal Dissolution

Pros

  • Company name can immediately be re-used if you decide you want to re-open your company     
  • There are no fees to re-instate your company, all you have to do is submit your new Articles of Organization
  • The company is ended on a specific day you desire, so no new lawsuits can be filed against it after that day
  • The company closure is clean and official with the state

Cons

Costs: State Fees

Recommendation

Clearly, this is the more professional option. All that's needed is to submit an Articles of Dissolution for your company, and make the necessary efforts to pay off debts, close bank accounts, and pay members of the LLC of any profits.
