Dissolution of Company/Business in Cambodia

  • 0

If you decide to dissolution a business in Cambodia, there are a few things you had better keep in mind.

1. You must end your Business

  • If you don’t declare bankruptcy or the business is never formally dissolved, you will leave behind a legal entity, a “ghost company” that can be sued even though there might not be any remaining assets.

2. Officially Dissolution the Business

  • There are two steps you must complete. First, send a letter informing the Tax Department that the business is planning to close. Within 1 – 2 months, an auditor is sent to the company and this is when any pending tax issues will be addressed. Once the Tax Department has approved the first step by issuing a certificate, the company must formally close the business down at the Ministry of Commerce, and then they will receive a Certificate of Closure.
  • As with registering a business, the process for dissolving a company can now also be done online. For more information, click here.

3. Few important things while Dissolution the Business

  • A company can face court supervision of the liquidation if it does not properly satisfy all its obligations.
  • Those include paying employee salaries, outstanding debts and due taxes.
  • The legal entity continues to exist until the date shown on a certificate of dissolution, issued by the MoC.
  • In addition, an official audit by the Department of Taxation is often necessary.
