Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA)

Once approved at a meeting of creditors, a CVA is a binding agreement or contract between a company and its creditors. A CVA is an extremely flexible rescue procedure that prevents creditors taking further action provided the company adheres to its agreement with its creditors.

If the CVA is the best option available, we will assist with the preparation of the proposals which are presented at the creditors’ meeting. The proposals set out the requirements of the company such as a contribution from future profits or a lump sum payment from a re-financing. Creditors will often be willing to accept payment of a proportion of the outstanding debt in full and final settlement with the remaining balance being written off by them.

Once the proposals are approved by creditors, the directors remain in control of the company whilst the procedure is managed by a licensed insolvency practitioner known as a 'Supervisor'.
