Principle and conditions
Any business which terminates its activity must announce its dissolution and name a liquidator.
The appointment of a liquidator is also required when a business is dissolved ipso jure in the following cases:
- Ipso jure dissolution by way of the expiration of the duration of the business
- Ipso jure dissolution due to the lack of regularisation following the conditions established by the article 51-11 of Code de Commerce , par suite du décès d’un associé, de sa mise en cessation de paiements, de sa mise en règlement judiciaire ou en liquidation judiciaire, de sa faillite personnelle, de son incapacité ou son interdiction de gérer
The dissolution of the business prompts an amendment .
When the liquidation operations are complete, the liquidator requests the removal of the business.
The law determines cases in which a business may be dissolved ipso jure without liquidation:
- Decision of the single partner to dissolve the business without liquidation, provided this single partner has all the stocks or shares in their hands
- Ipso jure dissolution without liquidation in the event that all stocks are collected in the hands of one person and in the absence of regularisation within the legal timeframe
- Dissolution without liquidation of a business which has been acquired by another party
