The process of closing a business differs by business structure, just as it does when registering. Depending on your business structure, you will need to either dissolve, terminate, or withdraw your business entity. Domestic corporations need to be dissolved; domestic limited partnerships, limited liability partnerships, and limited liability companies need to be terminated; and foreign associations need to be withdrawn.
Additionally, the steps included may have a fee associated with them. To see if there is a fee and the amount, please visit the Pennsylvania Department of State website.
