Continuing your Business
If you plan on continuing your company after JA, your team is still required to complete the liquidation process and closing of the business as per the JA Company Program requirements.
Once you have completed these requirements and have submitted your final shareholders' report, you can then determine as a team which members will continue on. All members who choose not to continue must understand that by doing so they are relinquishing their part in the company. You will need to have this clearly indicated and in writing – who will and will not continue with the company – and have all members sign off on it.
After that, your company’s affiliation with JA will come to an end and it will be up to the remaining members to determine the next steps for establishing your business.
If you are using Shopify, you may be able to keep your site. When liquidating, you may have to sell off any assets to yourselves (or whoever has agreed to continue the company) and then we will request Shopify to move the ownership of the Shopify account to you and your members. Keep in mind you will then be responsible for all Shopify membership fees going forward as soon as you are no longer affiliated with JA.
