Creditors Voluntary Liquidation

When your business is under pressure to pay creditors, there is an increased chance that your business will be forced into liquidation. However, by entering into a Creditors Voluntary Liquidation or CVL, you will have more control over the process.

A Difficult Position

Companies based across the UK find themselves from time to time in an insolvent position but are able to continue trading as a viable business while they manage any cash flow issues in the short term.

However, if the Director's of a business come to the conclusion that they are unable to continue trading without having a negative impact on the financial position of it's creditors, the only alternative is to close the business and cease trading.
