A Company Voluntary Liquidation (CVL) allows a company to manage their own liquidation, avoiding the stress and risk associated with a compulsory liquidation.

For businesses who act quickly while there is still cash in the company, the cost of liquidation can be funded using the company’s assets. Typical costs for a Company Voluntary Liquidation range between £4,000 and £6,000 (plus VAT and disbursements) and are dependent on a number of factors such as staff numbers, assets, total creditors.

A CVL involves stringent regulation and must be conducted by an Insolvency Practitioner. There are certain costs that are payable such as statutory advertising, insurance, agent fees (e.g. valuers), convening of creditor meetings and reporting costs.

It depends. Liquidators have a duty to obtain the best possible price for the company assets. If selling assets to the former Director, a professional valuation would be needed to show that the price offered is fair. The Liquidator is required to sell the assets for the highest offer received. If your offer is the highest then the assets can usually be sold to you.
