TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR DEBT AND MOVE FORWARD TO A BRIGHTER FINANCIAL FUTURE
Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA)
Company Voluntary Arrangements (CVA) are in many ways similar to the Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA) debt solution for personal consumers.
A CVA can be agreed at any point of a company’s insolvency, up to and including during liquidation.
The CVA must be administered by a qualified insolvency practitioner. The practitioner will fully review the company’s finances and submit a proposal to all the business creditors, which will include full details of the business’s liabilities and assets, offers for repayment of debts, and the proposed duration of the CVA.
Three quarters of the commercial creditors determined by debt value must agree in a meeting to accept the terms of the CVA proposal, after which the arrangement becomes binding on all parties.
Benefits of a CVA:
- The company will make one single affordable payment each month directly to the insolvency practitioner who, after he has deducted his fees, then disburses the payments out to the individual creditors as agreed;
- Once the CVA is approved, the business will become more stable and usually this will be reflected in an improved cash flow;
- While bound by the terms of a CVA, creditors may not continue or initiate legal action against the company;
- No interest or charges from historic debts included in the CVA can be added from the date of approval; and
- At the end of the CVA term, any outstanding debt that remains unpaid is written off including debt to HM Revenue and Customs.

I would like to say a very big "Thank You" to your lady on the telephone this morning who helped me start getting my life sorted and debts managed. So thank you "Sarah" great help... thank you again.L Smart
Thank you so much for your help with my IVA. As an ex-company Director my life took a downward spiral when creditors from my liquidated company called upon my personal guarantees. I had been treading water for months, ran up credit card debts and borrowed from family. When a creditor instigated bankruptcy proceedings against me I thought I was going to lose my house. I contacted Umbrella.UK Insolvency who stopped all the phone calls and threatening letters. Umbrella Insolvency explained things in a way I could understand. They negotiated with creditors and my IVA went through, now I can sleep at night again and I kept my home. Thomas Fox was extremely knowledgeable and I truly thank him and his team.Paul G
Thank you very much for your assistance in a successful proposal. We are ever so grateful as this is a chance to transform our lives; or rather you have given us a second chance to have our lives in order. Thank you for your patience and perseverance throughout that you showed.NP
I engaged Tom to arrange an IVA for me after I ran into financial difficulties as a result of the closure of my company. He introduced me to Sarah and both of them as a team worked tirelessly through Lockdown to get the best outcome for me and my family. Both Sarah and Tom were patient, thorough and incredibly compassionate for our situation. They attained the best outcome for us and I couldn't speak more highly of them. Thank you to you both, Amazing work.DH
Before I came to Umbrella.UK Insolvency I was in a bad place mentally due to debt because I believed I would be in my current situation for a long time to come. Umbrella Insolvency walked me through my options and helped me pick the best one. I am genuinely amazed at what they managed to do for me and can now afford to live comfortably, and without the constant worry of debt looming over me.MT
First of all, I would like to say a BIG Thank You for all of your assistance over the past year. I would not be in the positive state of recovery without Umbrella Insolvency. Your care and assistance at the application stage last summer, along with the advice throughout the year, has been great. I would not hesitate to tell anyone in my negative situation where to turn to.Mr TM
I'd just like to thank both you and Tom for your help with the closure of my company. You have been highly efficient and very professional throughout. Thank you.Tony D
Efficient & proactively managed very quickly. Umbrella.UK Insolvency guided me as sole Director of my small limited company, and the shareholders, through every step of a Members Voluntary Liquidation in a very efficient manner. The steps required were clearly laid out and proactively managed by their licensed practitioner. From first meeting through to an interim distribution of funds to shareholders took only a few days in our case. Thereafter, Umbrella will be managing all of the downstream actions required to complete the process with HMRC and Companies House, through to the final discharge of the company.Alex O
I extend my appreciation of your professional efficiency in handling my company business and herewith say thank you.Maxine R
I would like to thank Sarah and her team for all the hard work they have put into helping me sort my finances out once and for all. Without this IVA I would still be struggling every month trying to make ends meet. I received nothing but an efficient polite service every time I spoke to a member of your team and I'm so very grateful. Thank you so much. Natasha R
