Is it even possible to pretend a company never existed? Like an annulled marriage?Yes, but in such a way that it is as if the company was never registered in the first place. For instance, if one registers a company name, but it doesn't ever operate as a business, it would make sense to nullify something that never properly existed.
Have you ever heard of the phrase "nullify the company's registration"? Does it mean "de-register the company"?
This is the meaning of 'nullify' -> 'to render to nothing'. quillerbee is correct: it is the registration that is nullified and thus it is as if the registration never happened.Is it even possible to pretend a company never existed? Like an annulled marriage?
