What is a Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidation (CVL)?

A Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidation is the liquidation of a company that cannot pay its debts as they fall due. The process is instigated by the company itself when the directors realise the company is insolvent, they are obliged by the company law to put the company into liquidation.

What are the director’s duties for an insolvent company?

The directors must immediately act to protect the assets of the company, prepare to cease trading and organise the orderly wind-down of the company. While it is the director’s duty to organise the creditors meeting, in practice, we will organise in the notification of creditors, the advertisements in the newspapers, the booking of the meeting rooms or it should be noted that all meetings can now take place “virtually” and, if required, the provision of a specialist insolvency solicitor. We will also provide templates for all statutory documents required for the Creditors Meeting.

What do directors need to do for the creditors meeting?

The directors are themselves responsible for the presentation of two documents for the creditors meeting: The Estimated Statement of Affairs and the Chairman’s Statement. The Estimated Statement of Affairs is a summary of the assets and the liabilities of the company. The Chairman’s statement is a narrative of the company’s history, detailing the company background and outlining the reasons for the liquidation. These can be completed by the directors with or without the assistance of their financial advisors.

What does the liquidator do after appointment at the Creditors meeting?

How much will it cost?

There are two ways of funding a Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidation. Under the Companies Acts the Liquidator is entitled to take their fee from the sale of company assets. If there are no realisable assets or debtors in the company, it is the duty of directors to fund the liquidation themselves. Irish Insolvency offer the most competitive fixed fee in the industry, while operating to the highest professional standards.
