What Is Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidation?

When a company director or shareholder needs to close down a limited company that has become insolvent, a Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidation procedure may need to commence. The CVL will ensure the company meets all legal requirements to close.

Don’t forget insolvent means that the company cannot pay those that it is due to pay.

If a company is unable to meet its debts (what it owes), the directors and shareholders can agree to move the company into liquidation. The assets from the company are then used to pay any outstanding debts to creditors to the extent that the value of assets allow.

Do You Need Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidation?

If you need to close your company because it is insolvent, you will benefit from going through a process of Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidation. This is a legal process that needs to be handled professionally by licensed insolvency practitioners.

With most limited companies the liability is on the company rather than the directors and shareholders, unless there have been, for instance, specific guarantees to pay money owed to certain third parties.

A company can be generally considered insolvent when it doesn’t have the money to pay its creditors (meaning anyone owed money by the company). CVL is appropriate when:

  • The company is insolvent
  • The company does not appear to be viable even if restructured
  • The directors don’t feel they have the belief or funding needed to rescue the company

It’s important to understand that the liquidation of a company does not prevent, under advice, the rescue of parts of the business that operated within the company
