Frequently Asked Questions
How can you close a Private Limited Company?
There are three ways to close a private limited company i.e. selling of the company, declaring the company as ‘Defunct’ or dissolving the company.
At times, tribunal might also order the company to close its operations. In this case it will be a compulsory closure.

What is Fast Track Exit (FTE) mode in company closure?
Any defunct company who wishes to close or wind up its operations quickly can go for a Fast Track Exit mode. As the name suggests, this is a faster way to close a private limited company.
