Experienced Huntsville Business Attorneys Facilitate Business Dissolution and Protect Your Interests

Practical legal help when your business is dissolving

Business dissolutions can be voluntary and mutual, involuntary, petitioned, financially driven or personally motivated. The common thread in every process of winding down is the necessity of hiring an experienced commercial attorney to oversee the fine details involved in dissolving your business. While winding down may not always be as smooth and tranquil as the name implies, the Huntsville small business attorneys at Watson McKinney, LLP can provide you with the advice and legal counsel you need to check the boxes to closing your business

How we can help with your business dissolution needs

Dissolution is much more than flipping the “closed” sign and shutting off the lights. Business dissolution is the legal disbanding of a business and the process under which assets and property are sold and liquidated, debts are paid to creditors, shareholders and members are paid with the remaining money and liabilities are settled. Business dissolution can be a complex process, as it often involves assessing liabilities and completing formal reports and forms to successfully dissolve the business. These steps include:


·         Filing an annual return for the year you go out of business

·         Filing the final employment tax returns for your employees

·         Making final federal tax deposits of taxes

·         Filing returns to report disposing of business property

·         Assessing the value of the business

·         Changing the form of your business

·         Formalizing the business dissolution with the IRS

·         Complying with the requisite creditor-notice obligations

·         Settling creditors’ claims

·         Distributing assets 

Our Huntsville small business attorneys possess the knowledge, skill and experience in both the legal and business fields to walk you through the steps to facilitate the hassle-free dissolution of your business.
