“I was trying to figure out how to separate liability between my company and myself. I knew I needed to shut down but our lawyers were going to charge so much to close our business. Goodbye Startup was a literal lifesaver. I estimate they saved me $17,000.”
“Having been through YCombinator, you think you have all the resources at your fingertips. One part of a startup that isn’t often discussed is shutting down. Goodbye Startup made this process seamless.”
“Shutting down your company is a tough decision. It sucks to be honest. At least Goodbye Startup makes the process painless and unless a software driven approach. I could not imagine having to send dozens of documents back and forth with lawyers. It would have sucked even more! Thank you for saving my ass!”
“Having raised more than $17m for our startup and having a fairly complex cap table, I was not looking forward to figuring out how to return the capital we had left. Goodbye Startup figured this out in one click. That alone probably saved me days of time and hassle getting wire information from our investors.”
Why It’s Necessary to Close Your Business
Avoid fees and taxes
Until you dissolve your business, you’re still on the hook for the fees and taxes that come with operating it.
Put creditors on notice
After settling your final bills, formally dissolving lets creditors know your business can’t incur future debts.
States require it
If you’re winding down your company, you also need to dissolve it officially with the state you operate in.

Have Questions? Here are Some Answers:
What are the articles of dissolution?
It’s the form that lets the state know your business is officially dissolving. Articles of dissolution are required for most business types, such as LLCs and corporations. If you have a sole proprietorship—an unincorporated business that you run and own alone—there’s no need to file if you stop doing business.
What happens if I don’t dissolve my business?
You’ll still be obligated to file reports, pay taxes, and more. If you don’t dissolve and fail to meet those obligations, you could face fines, penalties, and the loss of your personal liability protection.
How much does it cost to use your service?
We have different packages depending on your needs. If you are just looking to shut a LLC or Corporation, we charge $149+ state filing fees. If you are looking for help to process a bankruptcy and return funds to your investors, we charge a bit more.See what plan is right for you
How long will it take to process the articles of dissolution?
Normally, we review and file your dissolution paperwork in one business day. However, the governing state agency might take some time to approve it; the timeline varies by state. In our experience, it usually takes one to six weeks for the request to be processed. Our team will help you to avoid any errors in your paperwork in order to have your case processed as quickly as possible.
