Creditors Voluntary Liquidation Vs. Members' Voluntary Liquidation

The purpose of each is very different, although they are both done voluntarily, and used for various reasons.

A Members’ Voluntary Liquidation is for solvent businesses, and Voluntary Liquidation is for insolvent companies.

With a Members’ Voluntary Liquidation, the proceeds of sale go to the shareholders, whereas with a Creditors Voluntary Liquidation, the proceeds for the purchase of assets go to the creditors.

Once the director(s) and shareholders have opted to close down the business, we recommend that a licensed insolvency practitioner assess the business’s financial position.

Neither of these options should be mistaken for a Compulsory Liquidation, remember this is where a creditor (secured or unsecured) has taken legal action against your company.

Company Money Worries are here to guide and support your business and whether a Voluntary Liquidation is right for your business.
