Liquidation and bankruptcy
The economic processes in Bulgaria and Europe may necessitate your business’ liquidation or bankruptcy. In some cases liquidation may be enforced, even if the managing bodies lack the will for this. In these cases, you can count on our expertise for complete fulfilment and protection of your interests. A company’s liquidation may also be purposeful and planned as early as upon its incorporation – in these cases, we can provide support for the timely termination of the company, the fair and timely redemption and allocation of assets, and for the company’s deletion from the Commercial Register and the Register of Non-Business Legal Entities.
