Restoring a company to the Register
A company can be restored to the Register up to a period of 10 years from the date on which it was removed from the register. (A company CANNOT be restored if it was struck off under s519 of the Companies (Guernsey) Law, 2008 - striking off for persistent and gross contraventions.)
There are 2 ways in which a company can apply to be restored:
1. an application is made to the Court.
2. an application is made to the Registrar.
s371(10) of the Law enables the Registrar to restore a company where it was struck off in error (as referred to in the Companies (Guernsey) Law, 2008 (Amendment) Ordinance 2014.
