Registrar “discontinues” strike-off countdown begun last month

Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners has had the looming threat of its partnership being dissolved lifted by registrar Companies House.

Last month the partnership was issued with a two-month notice for compulsory strike-off from the Companies House register.

No reason was given, but the firm’s 2016 accounts are overdue, having been due for filing by the end of March.

A letter to the practice from Companies House, dated June 5 but published this week, says the strike-off action has been discontinued.

It states: “Cause has been shown why the above limited liability partnership should not be struck off the register and accordingly the registrar is taking no further action under section 1000 of the Companies Act 2006 Limited Liability Partnerships (Accounts and Audit) (Application of Companies Act 2006) Regulations 2008.”

It is the second time the firm, whose new office (pictured below) is now at the Cheesegrater tower it designed on Leadenhall Street in the City of London, has been issued with such a notice, having picked up one back in October 2012. That notice was discontinued four days later.
