Companies House publishes legal notices in the Gazette
When you apply to strike off your company voluntarily with Companies House in the United Kingdom, Companies House will publish a notice in the Gazette.
The purpose of the publication is for the public to see what is going on with your company, and invite any objections to come forward before your company is being dissolved.
Which Gazette Companies house will publish your notice will depend on your company’s registered office address. For instance, if your company was incorporated in England then your company dissolution notice will be published in the London Gazette for a few months before being dissolved.
You can also see notices of companies being restored and companies gone under receivership and administration in the Gazette.
