to enable a claim to be brought against the company
to deal with property which the company still owned when it was struck off and dissolved, which has now vested as bona vacantia, and
where the company was struck off by the Registrar whilst it was still carrying on business
Where a company has been struck off the register at the instigation of the Registrar of Companies pursuant to sections 1000 or 1001 of the Companies Act 2006 (CA 2006), the applicant should consider whether or not the company could be restored using the simpler and quicker administrative restoration route instead of the court procedure.
