Make sure you apply for deregistration at least two weeks before your annual review fee due date
When a company lodges an application to voluntarily deregister, ASIC will publish a notice of the intended deregistration. If the notice is published before the review fee is due, you won't have to pay the annual review fee.
For example: if your company’s annual review fee is due on 1 June and the notice is published on 30 May, the review fee does not need to be paid.
If however the notice isn't published before the review fee is due, ASIC may still require you to pay the fee before you can deregister your company.
You should apply at least two weeks before the due date; this gives enough time for ASIC to receive your application and publish the notice on the ASIC website.
If the notice isn’t published before the review fee is due, you may need to pay the fee before you can deregister your company.
