Closing NC Business
If you want to close a North Carolina business, you do so by voluntarily filing Articles of Dissolution for the entity type (Business Corporation, Nonprofit Corporation, Limited Liability Company (LLC)).
Once you have voluntarily dissolved by filing Articles of Dissolution the company may only do those activities to wind up the affairs of the company.
If you change your mind after filing Articles of Dissolution for a Business or Nonprofit Corporation and it is within 120 days of the effective date of the voluntary dissolution, you may revoke the voluntary dissolution by filing Articles of Revocation of Dissolution.Should you need specific guidance regarding anything other than filing the documents, please consult an attorney of your choosing.
