Cayman Islands Voluntary Liquidations
With 2014 almost upon us, now is the time to start planning the liquidation of Cayman Islands entities that have reached the end of their life cycle to ensure that unnecessary 2014 fees are not incurred.
In order to prevent annual government registration fees being incurred the liquidator is required to hold the final general meeting for a company and file the final dissolution notice for an exempted limited partnership before 31 January 2014. Funds that are registered with the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (“CIMA”) will need to complete these steps by 31 December 2013 if they are to avoid their annual CIMA license fee.
