A Members’ Voluntary Liquidation (MVL) is a useful exit planning procedure initiated by directors to close down a solvent company.
Shareholders then appoint a liquidator to settle any remaining debts – the sum of money left over is distributed to the shareholders.
An MVL is a cost-effective strategy of closing down profitable businesses that have run their course. As distributions from liquidation can be treated as capital distributions, an MVL is a tax-saving option for shareholders.
Other good reasons for pursuing an MVL include:
- a company has simply come to the end of its useful life and you don’t wish to run it anymore;
- you would like to step down from the family business, but nobody else wants to take over;
- you are approaching retirement; or
- looking to entirely reconstruct the business.
