Yes, but only if proved that the entity was holding property or was active at the time of deregistration. Once a company or close corporation has been “finally deregistered”, the company or close corporation or any other person may apply for re-instatement upon filing of a form and supporting documents. Upon the processing of the re-instatement application, the status will be changed to ”re-instatement process”
What is the requirement for re-instating (restoring) a company or close corporation if it was deregistered due to non compliance with annual returns?
The same requirement as per a normal deregistration is applicable.
The applicant may either be,
- The Directors/members of the company or close corporation,
- A third person who has an interest in the re-instatement of the company or close corporation,
- The duly authorised representative of the directors/member/third person.
The person, whose customer code is used to file and affect payment, may not necessarily be the director/member/third person/representative.
A confirmation letter and certificate will be forwarded to the details of the person whose customer code was used.
