MPs have unanimously approved a motion put forward by Bedford MP Richard Fuller recommending ex-BHS boss Sir Philip Green should be stripped of his knighthood.
Mr Fuller suggested the retail tycoon had failed "to find his moral compass" in not addressing the store's pension deficit over the summer.
Following the debate in the House of Commons, MPs backed the his motion unopposed, meaning no full vote was needed.
They have asked the Honours Forfeiture Committee to ensure Sir Philip's knighthood is "cancelled and annulled".
The unprecedented decision is non-binding, although Downing Street indicated it believes the independent committee may have a decision to make in the future.
The Government also called on Sir Philip to "quickly" remedy the BHS pension scheme deficit, with investigations under way into the conduct of BHS directors and the management of the pension scheme.
BHS went into administration with a £571 million pension scheme deficit shortly after being sold for £1 by Sir Philip to Dominic Chappell.

Norwich has been identified by the government as a 'social mobility coldspot' in need of additional education funding.
The Education Secretary Justine Greening says the city will be one of six new Opportunity Areas which will support children and young people in disadvantaged areas.
The government will give £60 million to the areas identified as facing challenges to social mobility. The cash will see tailored plans developed in collaboration with local communities, educational institutions and business organisations, aimed at unlocking the potential of children and young people.
“Ensuring all children can access high-quality education at every stage is critical. This is about giving children in these areas the right knowledge and skills, advice at the right time, and great experiences.
“My department will work with local authorities, education and skills providers, businesses, and the wider community, not just to focus on what we can do to help inside schools, but also create the opportunities outside school that will raise sights and broaden horizons for young people.”
