Legal Question in Business Law in Delaware


We recently incorporated a C-corp in Delaware through Stripe atlas a little over 2 weeks ago.

Due to founder disagreements, we want to dissolve the company now.

I am not a US resident nor do I live there. I'm based in Canada on a Work permit.

Like to know

A) The complete costs of dissolving the company (Delaware, legal fees, minimum franchise tax...) and how long it'll take?

B) As a non-us resident should I file taxes for dissolving the c-corp?

First, it is easier and less expensive to dissolve a corporation that has had no business activity. So the first you should do is pause on anything you might want to do so you have a chance to consult with an attorney before complicating the circumstances.

Second, merely forming a corporation does not necessarily mean that taxes ought to be filed in tandem with the dissolution.

As I noted, if the corporation had no activity then it should be a straight forward matter to dissolve it and that would also mean that it will cost less.

Please contact me directly via email. I have many international clients so I'm used to working off business hours.
