Voluntary Liquidation Agreement

In particular, HMRC will ask the court for a company to be forcibly liquidated if a company has not paid unpaid taxes and HMRC has not been able to reach an agreement with the company. Voluntary liquidation of a member (MVL) is the formal process for termving a solvent business. MRLs are only available to solvent corporations and directors must provide an affidavit stating that the corporation: Ultimately, the availability of tax relief depends on the shareholder`s circumstances and the tax criteria in effect at the time of distribution. Although there may be tax advantages for shareholders/partners, the main purpose of liquidation should not be solely for this purpose. Indeed, HMRC has targeted Anti Avoidance Rules (TAAR) (introduced in the Finance Act 2016) which allow it to challenge distributions of shareholders in liquidation if it considers that the main purpose of the liquidation was to avoid taxes. You are also asked to sign a letter of commitment formally appointing us as liquidators of your company. A general meeting of shareholders will be held and, as long as the MVL is approved by 75% of the shareholders, the company will be put into liquidation and the appointed receiver will take control of the company`s affairs. MRLs are the appropriate means of liquidating a solvent enterprise, while CVL (sometimes abbreviated as “voluntary liquidation”) is the case when directors choose to voluntarily liquidate their insolvent enterprise instead of waiting for forced liquidation. You must ensure that commitments are settled, that your deposit book is tracked and recovered, and that all of HMRC`s obligations, including the filing of accounts, are up to date.

It is also recommended to unsubscribe for VAT and as an employee as soon as you stop trading. Claims not paid by creditors, including funds owed to HMRC, are legally remunerated at an interest rate of 8% as soon as the company is in liquidation, so it is strongly recommended that you meet all financial obligations before the start of the LMV. If the decision is taken by vote, the company is dissolved and dissolved. Voluntary liquidation means that it is a company decision and not a court-imposed decision.
