Liquidation of a Bulgarian company

How to close a company in Bulgaria?

The procedure of ‘closing’ a Bulgarian company is called ‘liquidation of the company’ and this procedure is approved by the Trade Law of the Republic of Bulgaria which regulates all the requirements for starting and performing of the liquidation. The Bulgarian legislation allows all the creditors to present their claims to the company within 6 months from the initiated liquidation procedure. After the six months period the company is officially removed from the Commercial Register.

The liquidation begins with the decision of the shareholders to terminate the business activities of the company and to appoint liquidator. The six month period of the liquidation is in order to:

  • The completion of the ongoing transactions;
  • To cash the assets of the company;
  • To meet and satisfy the creditors;
  • If there is property left it should be divided among the shareholders.

Our lawyers will assist you with the preparation of the required documents for the initiation of the liquidation process, the deletion of the company in the Commercial Register and the appointment of a professional liquidator (a representative of our company) to satisfy your requirements.

The difference between liquidation and insolvency

  • The liquidation is voluntary act that commences by decision of the general meeting of the shareholders of the company, whereas the insolvency is always opened by a court order.
  • The liquidation protects the interests of the debtor, whereas the insolvency protects the interests of the creditors.
  • Both liquidation and insolvency aim to satisfy the creditors through establishing the insolvency estate, its transformation into money and distribution among creditors. The competence of the syndic and liquidator is quite similar.
