864. Power to strike off LLP not carrying on business or in operation
(1) If the Registrar has reasonable cause to believe that an LLP is not carrying on business or in operation, the Registrar may send to the LLP a communication inquiring whether the LLP is carrying on business or in operation.
(2) If the Registrar does not within one month of sending the communication receive any answer to it, the Registrar must within 14 days after the expiration of that month send to the LLP a second communication referring to the first communication and stating —
(a) that no answer to it has been received, and
(b) that if an answer is not received to the second communication within one month from its date, a notice will be published on the Registrar's website with a view to striking the LLP's name off the register.
(3) If, within one month after sending the second communication, the Registrar —
(a) receives an answer to the effect that the LLP is not carrying on business or in operation, or
(b) does not receive any answer,
the Registrar may publish on the Registrar's website and send to the LLP, a notice that at the expiration of three months from the date of the notice the name of the LLP mentioned in it will, unless cause is shown to the contrary, be struck off the register and the LLP will be dissolved.
(4) At the expiration of the time mentioned in the notice the Registrar may, unless cause to the contrary is previously shown by the LLP, strike its name off the register.
(5) The Registrar must publish notice on the Registrar's website of the LLP's name having been struck off the register.
(6) On the publication of the notice on the Registrar's website the LLP is dissolved.
(7) However —
(a) the liability (if any) of every member of the LLP continues and may be enforced as if the LLP had not been dissolved, and
(b) nothing in this section affects the power of the Court to wind up a LLP the name of which has been struck off the register.
