Business Dissolution in Texas
Businesses can be held as sole proprietorships, partnerships, or as various types of corporations. Regardless of the structure, when your business must be dissolved, certain actions must be taken. Generally, the dissolution of a business may be triggered by an event such as business failure or some action initiated by the Board of Directors followed by the consent of the shareholders. In many cases the events that may lead to business dissolution may have been established in the company’s governing documents.
To dissolve a business in Texas, the following steps may be required:
- The issuance of appropriate legal notices.
- Paying off debts and liabilities.
- Collecting on all monies owed the company.
- Obtaining a valuation of all business property and assets
- Liquidating assets and property.
- Handling all accounting and tax considerations.
- Distributing the proceeds of any funds left over from the above steps.
Throughout this process, disagreements may arise between business owners as to how best to deal with the above steps. Other disagreements may arise between business owners, creditors, vendors, those that owe the business various types of payment, and others. Issues can arise involving breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, and more. These issues can take place between partners, between management and shareholders, between any parties with a claim or interest involving the business. Many moving parts can be involved between various parties in winding down a business and handling the legal steps required to do so.
