The Process For A Business Entering Into A Company Voluntary Arrangement or CVA

Definition of a CVA

A company voluntary arrangement is when a company proposes an agreement with its creditors. This arrangement must be approved by the court, in which the company has formally agreed terms with its creditors for the settlement of its debts.

Considering The Proposal

Where the nominee is not the administrator or liquidator they must deliver notice of consent to the proposer as soon as possible after receiving the proposal. Within 28 days of receipt the nominee must submit a report to the court.

Once the CVA is approved

If the members and creditors approve the arrangement, the nominee or his replacement becomes the supervisor of the arrangement.
