If you want to.

I'd just fill in the "Dormant Company" form and hang on to it, if it has
no bad history.

It's a lot more hassle getting a new company registered, opening a bank
account, getting Revenue forms sorted etc etc if you find that sometime
in the future you want to trade again.

Yes, I always say that to my clients. People seem to imagine there's a
lot of hassle keeping a company going even if it's dormant but it only
costs 15 pounds a year and returning a pre-printed annual return as
well as a DCA form.

I think that if a company is struck off and it has assets, then the they
fall as "bona vacantia" and belong to the crown.

Despite what the form says, you can still use it for any year it's
dormant unless there are exceptional circumstances.
