Members Voluntary Liquidation

Understanding the importance of a well-structured business exit, Parker Andrews offers comprehensive Members Voluntary Liquidation (MVL) services. An MVL is ideal for directors and shareholders of solvent companies seeking a tax-efficient and orderly closure or restructuring of their business.

What is a Members Voluntary Liquidation (MVL)?

An MVL is a formal process used by solvent companies to wind up affairs in a tax-efficient manner. It is typically utilised in scenarios such as retirement of owners/directors, business closure or exit from markets, group reorganisation, or in the case of mergers/demergers.
