how to close a business the right wayClosing a business requires more than just hanging an “out of business” sign in the window and locking the doors. Depending on the circumstances, the closing of your business can cause high levels of stress and anxiety, especially for those unfamiliar with the proper steps to take and the correct forms to file. While both the state of California and the federal government offers resources to assist, the help of an experienced business law attorney could make all the difference. 

When closing a business in California, the owners must:

  1. File final year current tax returns
  2. File proper dissolution, surrender and cancellation forms with the California Secretary of State’s office within 12 months of filing the final tax forms
  3. Refrain from conducting business in the state after the final taxable year

The workers continued to work as the union worked towards a solution with the company, but the workers' patience has run out. They went on strike recently, meaning that some 39,000 people are no longer supporting the critical services mentioned above.

It sounds as though work location and job security are critical issues for workers, and there will certainly be a lot for the company and the unions to go over before a new agreement can be reached.Â

Back in 2011, a similar situation occurred with about 45,000 Verizon employees going on strike for about two weeks.
