Creditor’s Guide to Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidation (CVL)

We help creditors gain greater control, and improve outcomes in a Creditors' Voluntary Liquidation (CVL).

Although the process is called a Creditors' Voluntary Liquidation (CVL); it's the director who decides whether the company is able to meet its obligations and commitments.


Meeting of Shareholders

If the director decides the company is insolvent, they must:

  • Call a meeting of shareholders
  • Convince 75% of shareholders to wind up the company
  • Nominate an insolvency practitioner to coordinate the Liquidation.

Insolvency practitioners act as Liquidators on behalf of the court and have far-reaching statutory duties.


Deemed Consent

The first responsibility of the nominated insolvency practitioner is to contact all the creditors. They will be informed that on a given date (usually within 7 to 10 days), the company will be deemed to have gone into Liquidation.

Unless creditors call for a physical Meeting of Creditors (see below); they are deemed to have accepted the decision to make the company insolvent.
