Creditors Voluntary Liquidation

Understanding the complexities and challenges of Liquidation, Parker Andrews provides comprehensive assistance through the Creditors' Voluntary Liquidation (CVL) process. A CVL is initiated by a company’s directors to cease trading and liquidate the company, offering an orderly method to close down a company facing insolvency.

What is a Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidation (CVL)?

Unlike involuntary Liquidation, which is often the result of creditor enforcement action, a CVL is a voluntary process initiated by the company’s directors. It allows the business to address its debts and conclude its affairs in a structured manner.

Once you decide to proceed with the Liquidation, you’ll formally engage Parker Andrews. We’ll become the point of contact for creditors and customers, handling correspondence on your behalf.

Preparation for Creditors’ Meeting

Our team will assist in preparing a Statement of Affairs and a report for the creditors’ meeting, based on the financial information you provide.

Members and Creditors’ Meetings

The members’ meeting will pass resolutions to wind up the company and appoint a Liquidator. The creditors’ meeting will ratify the appointment and address any queries.

Implementation of Liquidation

After the company enters Liquidation, the Liquidator completes statutory duties, realises assets, and reports to creditors before the final meeting concludes the Liquidation.


What are the benefits of choosing a CVL?

A CVL provides a controlled and orderly process to wind up a company, ensuring fair treatment of creditors and reducing director liabilities.

How will a CVL affect my role as a director?

Directors lose control of the company once the CVL process begins, but it can protect from personal liabilities associated with the company’s debts.

What should I prepare for the CVL process?

Prepare financial records, including assets and liabilities details, and be ready to discuss your business’s situation in depth.
