Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidation (CVLs)

A Creditors Voluntary Liquidation (CVL) is a procedure initiated by the director/s of a company to voluntarily bring about the end of the business when the company is insolvent, defined by insolvency legislation as an inability to pay debts as and when they fall due or when assets are less than its liabilities.

The company’s shareholders must pass resolutions to place the company into Liquidation and to appoint a Liquidator, a licensed insolvency practitioner, who will assume control of the company’s affairs.

Once appointed, the Liquidator is charged with disposing of its assets for the benefit of the creditors. The sale may be back to the director/s to enable the business to continue in another form.

The ‘liquidated’ company will cease to trade and the Liquidator will wind up all outstanding matters including dealing with all employee and creditor queries.

  • 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 (January 2017)
