What is a creditors voluntary liquidation or CVL? 1

A creditors voluntary liquidation, or a CVL, is an insolvency procedure to place an insolvent company into Liquidation to bring its life to an end.

A Creditors Voluntary Liquidation is an out of court procedure which uses a private sector Insolvency Practitioner, instead of the Courts and the Insolvency Service.

It is therefore a much quicker procedure and the cost of placing the Company into liquidation is broadly the same.

A CVL can also be used to organise a phoenix company, which can increase assets realisations, save jobs and increase the return to creditors overall.
