Members voluntary liquidation
Members Voluntary Liquidation is a process used to wind up a solvent company that has ceased trading or is dormant.
Advantages of a members voluntary liquidation:
- Savings on ongoing audit and accounting costs
- Savings in management time previously taken up with the preparation of financial information and tax returns
- Reducing risk to the company and its directors by avoiding corporate memory loss. This can happen when a company is being inactively maintained
- Often used as part of a corporate simplification process where a group wants to streamline its corporate structure
- Can be a very tax efficient method of distributing cash/ assets to shareholders
- Averts the danger of an inactive company being involuntarily struck off by the Companies Registration Office during one of their regular checks. This can happen if the requisite Annual Returns have not been filed. Involuntary strike off can result in the loss of a company’s limited liability protection
