Members voluntary liquidation (MVL) enables a company to be closed down, its assets realised and its creditors paid, with the residual funds being distributed as capital to its shareholders in a tax-efficient manner.
Shareholders appoint a liquidator, requiring 75% approval, and a declaration of solvency is prepared by the directors, which states that the company can pay its liabilities in full, plus statutory interest, within a 12-month period.
The tax implications of an MVL need to be fully understood prior to the solvent liquidation being commenced in order to maximise the shareholders’ return.
