What is a CVA?
A Compulsory Voluntary Arrangement, also known as a CVA is legally binding agreement with the people you owe money to (Creditors). The agreement allows you to repay a proportion of your debts back over an agreed period of time.
The repayments are made as installments, often monthly, or as lump sum amounts. The repayments are usually a proportion of the debt owed and can be as little as 40-50% of what is owed.
To enter into a CVA at least 75% of your creditors have to agree to the proposal. Once the proposal has been agreed, all unsecured creditors are bound by the arrangement and no further action can be taken against the company. The company can then carry on trading as normal with the Directors in control of operations.
CVA’s arrangements usually last for 3-5 years and during this time the agreement is monitored by a licensed insolvency practitioner.
A CVA can be a really good option to enable you to continue to run your business, whilst managing your creditors. Mounting debts and aggressive creditors can be extremely stressful and can take up a huge amount of your time, which in turn leaves you with less time and energy to actually turn your business around.
It is a big decision to enter into a CVA , as it carries long term consequences for the company and all company Directors, so it’s vital that you receive expert advice to ensure that a CVA is the right action for you and your business.
What are the benefits of a CVA?
