Creating a business requires hard work, time, and a lot of energy. The business becomes an important and integral part of your life. The decision to close a business is, therefore, a difficult one that can often be contentious, if multiple partners are involved.
The steps for dissolving a business vary depending on the type of business and if there are any rules regarding the dissolution. The first step to take involved discussing the dissolution with your business partners, if there are any. You will need to discuss what rules are in place to regulate the dissolution. If you set forth specific rules, such as needing a two-thirds majority vote from all partners to proceed, you will need to follow all rules.
In additions to following your business specific rules, you will need to follow the Pennsylvania state laws that include how you settle your affairs with creditors, employees, suppliers, and contractors. In order to avoid disputes and possible litigation, you will need to file all paperwork with the state, pay the remaining payroll and taxes, and sell the remaining business assets.
