Company Voluntary Arrangement

Steering you through difficult times


A Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) is an agreement between an insolvent company and its creditors which allows a company to pay back a percentage of their debts over an extended period of time. It is a reliable, fair way to ensure your company can transition through difficult and challenging periods whilst alleviating stress and concern on your part. A Company Voluntary Arrangement is one of the most common forms of business rescue and will ensure you are put at ease by providing a comprehensive, industry-approved solution that will help steer your company through difficult and adverse times. If your creditors agree to a Company Voluntary Arrangement proposal, your insolvent company can pay creditors over a fixed period of time whilst continuing to trade. Typically, the agreement consolidates your company’s debts into a single monthly payment until you have paid the debt off.
