I opened a LTD company for a startup, in order to reserve the company name, back in 2013. I sat down with a freelance accounting (whom I am not in touch with)to set the company up. He informed me that I would not need to do anything until the company started trading, which it never did. A company bank account was never set up.
I never received any mail from the HMRC at the registered address and I never informed the HMRC of anything, but I have been filing the relevant documentation using the Companies House filing website every year (bar last).
I now want to dissolve the company as last year I forgot to file the accounts and I don't really want the hassle going forward.
Am I ok to simply file a DS01 form and submit in writing the HMRC that the company is being dissolved?
I can't help but feel that I was a little naive in setting up the company and might get a shock when I do let them know?
