Is a CVL an efficient exit route for my business?


Written by Jonathan Munnery

Whether a CVL is appropriate for your company depends on a range of factors including the financial position of the company, the likelihood of the business being able to return to a profitable position, and the desire of its directors to effect a recovery.

In some cases, liquidation is the only realistic option, particularly when it comes to ensuring you do not worsen the position of your creditors. For some businesses this may mean that they have to cease trade immediately in order to prevent further losses being accrued, while others may be able to continue to trade temporarily if this would allow for a better financial return for creditors.

Insolvency is a highly complex area therefore it is always advisable to seek the advice of a licensed insolvency practitioner at the early signs of insolvency. They will be able to assess the position of your company and help you understand your options. If liquidation is the most appropriate next step, they will be able to place your company into a CVL and ensure an orderly winding up of its affairs.

I had been trying to keep my café afloat for months but to no avail. I decided to take insolvency advice to see what my options were. I cannot fault the service provided by UK Liquidators during every stage of the liquidation.
