Winding up your company
Taking the decision to wind up your company is always tough. But if the business is not viable, debts are racking up and you find yourself pumping in personal cash, getting help and advice, will make you feel better. Putting off the decision will increase the pressure from creditors and is likely to give rise to sleepless nights.
Liquidation Process made simpler
Winding up your company has become simpler. There are now different processes that can be used for the process including Virtual Meetings (Creditors cannot physically attend and can only dial in)* or Deemed Consent – creditors get paperwork asking for a simple yes or no to the appointment of a liquidator.
Creditors can object (if they represent 10% of the value of debts or there are more than 10 creditors) and it will then be necessary to actually call an old style meeting of creditors where they can attend in person.
Liquidating the assets
As the name suggests, liquidation is the process by which the assets of the company are converted into cash. The assets could be monies owed to the company, order book, goodwill and physical assets such as equipment. The liquidator works alongside agents who help to turn the assets into cash. The cash firstly covers the costs of liquidation and then the balance goes to creditors.
Voluntary Arrangements for companies “CVA’s
If your business is viable and can trade on a cash positive basis (assuming the debts are frozen), a CVA can allow your company to carry on trading and make monthly contributions towards the debt.
Survival of the whole of part of the company/business
Administration can be used to turnaround underperforming companies, achieve a better outcome than liquidation or just return more money to secured creditors. These are what are termed the “stated purposes” of administration. Frequently the administration process is used to sell viable parts of the business with the debts remaining with the company in administration.
