There are two methods of shutting down a company.  The first is when you still have assets and liquidity in the company that exceed your debts and liabilities. U sing a members’ voluntary liquidation will allow you to cease trading and extract your cash in a tax efficient manner.   The alternative situation is where your business’ assets will not meet your liabilities. In such circumstances, your company is deemed insolvent and you are required to shut down operations with a creditors’ voluntary liquidation (CVL). 

Regardless of the event that triggered difficulties within your business – whether this can be attributed to customers failing to pay their invoices or changes in the business, you may appoint your own administrator.  This authority is responsible for selling off your assets to meet your creditors’ demands.
