4 Key Questions on Company Voluntary Arrangement

 

How do you know if a Company Voluntary Arrangement is right for you?

A Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) is a good option for companies that are struggling to keep up to date with their debt repayments. As mentioned above, it provides a legally binding agreement that means your business cannot be targeted with winding up petitions or any other legal recourse while the agreement is in place.

Once you decide to seek a CVA, a voluntary agreement proposal will be put together by an Insolvency Practitioner, based on your finances. This will be put to your creditors, with 75% approval required for it to be accepted. It also needs to be ratified by your shareholders before it can be implemented.

Once it’s been agreed, a trust account is set up for payments to be made into and for creditors to be paid from. A CVA can buy time for you to improve cash flow, and it can help you to retain the services of key members of staff to ensure you’ve got the best chance of keeping your business solvent.
 

What are the main reasons to consider a CVA?

For anyone looking at a CVA insolvency solution, there are a number of key motivations for finding the right company voluntary arrangement for you and your company, including:

  • It allows you to keep control of your business
  • It provides your company with protection from its creditors
  • Your business carries on trading, enabling a restructure to improve profitability
  • Rather than calculating numerous creditors, they’re all consolidated into one payment

 

What are the main benefits of a CVA?

In addition to the main protections offered by finding the right company voluntary arrangement through the support of a CVA expert, there are a range of key benefits offered, namely.

  • Improvements in cash flow, therefore increasing working capital in the business
  • The company continues in its existing form without requiring a “new company”
  • A discrete proceeding – the situation is not publicly advertised as it is with an administration
  • Can prevent a winding-up petition taking effect (as long as action is taken quickly)
  • Your creditors will feel more confident they will receive the amount owed, reducing pressure they put on you
  • Enables an ongoing relationship with many of your suppliers, often under different payment terms
