A few years ago I created a company to start an app project. I released the series of apps but things did not work very well. The apps did not generate any significant revenue and I gradually abandoned the project. The company did still exist, but my accountant charged me an annoyingly big amount of money to just keep the company, which had nearly no income and nearly not expenses, alive.
After a while, and after a big bill from the accountant, I started the process of shutting down the company to avoid the expenses. This process just managed to be completed when something happened...
On a day with some extra time on my hands I did some small changes to the apps on the account registered to the deleted company, and in the following weeks things started really rolling. Now the apps are making a lot of money...
Everything is functioning properly, and money is paid out to my personal bank account. I did not think of this as a problem until my accountant responsible for doing the accounting for my personal company, doing my taxes etc, notified me that I could not write off expenses for some ads that I had run to get more downloads of the now revived apps.
After thinking about all of this for a while I am now very worried that I am in big problems. What will happen if I tell Apple that the company behind my app-account is no longer active? Will they shut down the account and all my apps?
Can I change the company behind the developer account if I start a new company?
I am unable to create a new account and transfer my apps as all the apps uses Auto-Renewable Subscriptions which for some reason cannot be included when transferring an app between accounts. The extremely bad timing of shutting down the seemingly "dead" company is really torturing me. Now I am afraid Apple will suddenly shut down my account and stop all payments as the company no longer exists.
Can someone please help me regain some faith that I am not in deep trouble? I am very nervous about this.
I am worried I have made a big mistake.
