Selling or closing a business


The decision to close or sell your business can be a difficult one to make, whatever the reasons might be.

This guide will look at the issues you need to consider when selling or closing your business including finalising tax issues with HM Revenue & Customs, your responsibilities to employees and suppliers, and informing Companies House. See informing Companies House when selling or closing a business.

It covers both stopping self-employment and partnerships and closing or selling a limited company.
