One key factor to consider when you are closing down a business is the financial circumstances. In the case of a fully solvent business a members' voluntary liquidation allows the directors to formally end the company. All debts are satisfied and any remaining capital can be distributed to the shareholders.
If however the business is suffering from a negative cashflow situation and is legally insolvent then it may be necessary to implement a creditors’ voluntary liquidation. In this situation an insolvency practitioner is appointed to take control of the company in order to pay off the creditors whilst closing down the business.
In certain cases directors may be permitted to purchase key assets of the business. These can be subsequently deployed to set up a new entity, shedding debt and regaining profitability. Used successfully it’s possible to save jobs and client relationships.
