Company Liquidation

Liquidation is one of the most common ways for a business to handle severe problems with debt. It is the process where a company is wound up and the assets and property of the company are distributed amongst stakeholders and creditors. For businesses facing problems with debt there is type of liquidation called voluntary liquidation which allows a company to voluntarily apply to liquidate the business. The advantage of a voluntary liquidation lies in that once a company has been liquidated, all outstanding debt is written off by creditors, leaving a clean break for directors who want to start fresh.

There are two main types of voluntary liquidation:


Creditors Voluntary Liquidation (CVL)

This is the process where the directors of a business, along with a licensed insolvency practitioner, choose to put an insolvent business into liquidation.


Members Voluntary Liquidation (MVL)

This is the process that takes place when a company is solvent, but is no longer viable and needs to be wound up.

Creditors Voluntary Liquidation

Also known as a CVL, Creditors Voluntary Liquidation is one of most used solutions to business debt. As described above, a company goes into CVL when they cannot pay their debts and the directors and shareholders decide to liquidate the company because it is insolvent. An insolvency practitioner is appointed to oversee the process and organise the collection and distribution of the company assets. A CVL is appropriate when the insolvent business is no longer viable and the directors do not want to continue trading.
