Various methods may be used to dissolve a corporation. The five most common methods include:
- By action of the incorporators or directors
- By action of the board and shareholders
- By action of a shareholder
- By expiration of term
- By not filing annual reports for two years
The dissolution of a corporation by action of the board or shareholders requires the filing of a Certificate of Dissolution. A tax clearance must be requested from the Michigan Department of Treasury within 60 days of the filing the dissolution. Nonprofit charitable purpose corporations must obtain a letter of consent to the dissolution from the Michigan Attorney General before the dissolution can be filed. The dissolution of a corporation is a complex process and an attorney should be consulted.
