Members’ Voluntary Liquidation

Retire your company solvent and debt free

Liquidation can seem the worst possible outcome for any company and its owner. It is like the end of all of your hard work, endeavour and ambition. At Baxter Ramsay, we aim to educate our clients on all of the possibilities that can occur in the event of liquidation; that there can be a silver lining to the prospect of liquidation: members’ voluntary liquidation. Liquidation occurs when a company is insolvent and unable to pay its obligations as and when they are due. The company’s operations are forcibly brought to an end and its assets picked apart and divided up amongst its creditors and shareholders. Members’ voluntary liquidation on the other hand is when the company is solvent and able to pay its debts. Like the name suggests it is purely voluntary: you may want to retire, step down from running a family business or you simply don’t want to run the business any more.
