What is a Members’ Voluntary Liquidation (MVL)?

A Members’ Voluntary Liquidation is a tax efficient way to place a solvent company into Liquidation with a view to paying all creditors in full and returning excess funds to Shareholders.

Key advantages of an MVL are:

All creditors are paid in full

The company is closed down in the correct manner ensuring everything is dealt with

Profits are distributed as capital to minimise the personal tax of the Shareholders

Potential to qualify for Entrepreneurial Relief

How does a Members’ Voluntary Liquidation work?

A Members’ Voluntary Liquidation is initiated by the Directors of a solvent company. This process is used where creditors will be paid in full. It is a way for Directors to close a company and demonstrate that all loose ends have been tied up.

The Directors of the solvent company approach an Insolvency Practitioner to undertake the work involved in an MVL.  Once appointed, the IP will ensure that everything is closed down correctly and all statutory issues are dealt with. They will then pay creditors in full within 12 months of the date of the Liquidation and any excess funds will be returns to the Shareholders.

At the end of an MVL, the company will cease to exist.
