Dongguan company deregistration refers to that a Dongguan company files an application to the related government department when shareholders decide to terminate the company. And the Dongguan company should follow all the other procedures to proper company dissolution. It is important to keep in mind that liquidation does not always occur for negative reasons such as bankruptcy. A company may also seriously consider liquidation for strategic reasons.

Motives for Company Deregistration
1. A resolution for dissolution is made at a meeting of a company’s shareholders.
2. A company is absorbed in a merger or has been separated from the controlling entity.
3. Expiration of business operations.
4. The business license has been revoked by the government/an order for closure has been issued or the business license has been ordered-to-be-closed or cancelled by the government in the public’s best interests due to determined legal violations (such as negative environmental impact or catastrophic malpractice).
5. A company undergoes financial difficulties and cannot anticipate transforming the business to deliver future profitability.
6. Force Majeure such as fire, natural disaster, warfare or changes in government regulations etc. enforce the liquidation of the company.
7. A company decides to relocate all or a division out of China to another country, to take advantage of: cheaper labour, a more relevantly skilled talent pool, a more supportive political environment etc. This may necessitate the company to liquidate all of their assets in China.
