From an accounting point of view, you closed "the books" of this company. From a legal and tax point of view, you must check with the Secretary of State of the State in which this company is incorporated, whether you need prior approval before redeeming the share capital of the company. In addition, there are also local, State, and Federal tax and some legal requirements to report and file a "final closing report" with these offices.

Funny post, Kat. And so true. Been happening a lot lately.

Another potential category could be "Answers to questions posed a year or more ago". We could call the category "Tomb Raider" !
