Liquidation, CVA, MVL, what are my options?

Closure and company liquidation options

Business rescue

We work with businesses to achieve the best possible outcome from your debt situation. Because we work for you, the business owner, and not the bank or creditors. Options may include reducing or restructuring debt or reducing payment terms.

Creditors voluntary liquidation

A liquidator normally uses business assets to satisfy company debts. In short, This option facilitates the closure of the company and its associated obligations, which in turn, leave the companies directors free to open a new business.

Additional funding

We work with you to improve the number one problem for many businesses cash flow. There are several ways to achieve this, refinancing debt and invoice financing are both viable options; we also work with a clutch of handpicked investors.

Members voluntary liquidation

An MVL treats any remaining profit in the company as capital instead of income, which, in turn, means the remaining sum is susceptible to capital gains tax. However, the tax liability can be reduced to as little as 10% using entrepreneurs relief, making this option tax efficient.

Strike off or dissolution

This solution allows a company to be struck off or dissolved and involves completing a simple online form along with a small payment to companies house; a due process is then followed, provided no third party raises an objection the company ceases to exist.

Individual voluntary arrangement

Often used for sole traders, this formal arrangement keeps debts at a reasonable level and binds your creditors. IVA’s can take away the guesswork by giving you a defined payment amount and schedule, leaving you to get on with running your business.
