Amalgamation: Vertical or Horizontal
To file for vertical or horizontal amalgamation under section 273 and 274 of the Business Corporations Act, submit an online amalgamation application through Corporate Online.
To ensure you have all the information you need before you start the online application, you may wish to fill out a paper copy of the application first. Choose the appropriate short form for your amalgamated company:
- Application for a B.C. limited company
- Application for a B.C. unlimited liability company
- Application for a B.C. community contribution company
Visit Corporate Online and complete your filing using a credit card or for BC OnLine customers, file using your BC OnLine account. You will need the BC company incorporation number and company password for each amalgamating company. Corporate Online has online help information to help you through the process.
If you cannot file the application electronically, prepare the paper forms and contact a law firm or registry agent to submit the forms for you. Check with the law firm or registry agent regarding additional fees.
