Demystifying Company Voluntary Arrangements
When companies first get in touch with Hillcrest Finance, they’ll have a million and one questions which need answering. Our advisors have seen it all before and can highlight where issues which may be on your mind are minor, and what problems you need to dispel.
Whether it’s understanding that the HMRC prefers CVAs in many cases, or that customers & clients will stick with you if you have a viable business, it helps to speak with our team and get those nagging questions answered.
What happens when a Company Voluntary Arrangement runs into problems?
Let’s say your business is already in a CVA and you realise upcoming payments are going to be an issue. When this happens, it is preferable to see if minor changes can be made to extend the payment timeframe and lower payments, just like changing mortgage rates. When issues like this happen, a clearly thought out proposal will help creditors give their approval in what could be a much more difficult second vote.
Is a Company Voluntary Arrangement better than liquidation?
It may seem like closing up shop and moving on would be the easiest option, but all things need to be considered. A CVA may be preferable to the true cost of liquidation, and it is important to weigh up both. Again, this is something the practitioners at Hillcrest Finance can advise on.
