What is a Company Voluntary Arrangement? How can this help a company in financial difficulties?  

    • A Company Voluntary Arrangement is often referred to as a CVA
    • Trading usually continues for the company
    • A repayment plan is agreed with creditors based on what the debtor company can afford
    • The CVA will typically be over a three to five year period
    • Dividends repaid to creditors can vary from 25p to 100p in the £
    • The CVA is a legally binding agreement between the company and the creditors
    • The aim of the CVA is to allow the business to survive as a going concern, or to achieve better realisation of the company’s assets.

How do the directors make the difficult decision and choose between a CVA or a Pre-Pack Administration or a creditor’s voluntary liquidation or to trade through?

That’s where we can help! We would be pleased to have a meeting to go through all the options – please call Tim Corfield or Richard Owen for a free consultation.
