Members Voluntary Liquidation

What is a Members’ Voluntary Liquidation [“MVL”]?

In most cases, an MVL is the best way for a shareholder to get his/her money out of a company in a tax efficient manner. In addition, it can be used as a tool to carry out the reconstruction of the assets or trade of a company.

Capital reliefs, such as Business Asset Disposal Relief [aka Entrepreneurs Relief], can be applied to all capital distributions made by the Liquidator to shareholders who own 5% or more of the company’s shareholding.

We aim to ensure that capital distributions are made to shareholders in a timely and efficient manner. In most MVLs, a significant cash distribution is made to members within 24 hours of our appointment.
