X arrow MEMBERS VOLUNTARY LIQUIDATION
X

A members' voluntary liquidation can only take place if the company is solvent.

The directors must make a formal declaration of solvency, which must:

    • be made by the majority of directors on a date no more than 5 weeks before the passing of the resolution for voluntary winding up;
    • be filed at Companies House;
    • state that the directors have made a full inquiry into the company's affairs and are of the opinion that the company can pay its debts and interest within a maximum of 12 months; and
    • include an up-to-date statement of the company's assets and liabilities.

It is a criminal offence to make a declaration of solvency without reasonable grounds.

The shareholders must hold a general meeting of the company that passes a resolution:

    • For voluntary winding up; and
    • Appointing one or more liquidators of the company.

If it later turns out that the company is not solvent, the liquidator will call a meeting of creditors and the liquidation becomes a creditors' voluntary liquidation (creditors’ voluntary liquidation)
