Members Voluntary Liquidation (MVL)

It is a common occurrence for even the most successful business to restructure for many reasons. It could be the sale of part of the business, the splitting of the business into segments, the closure of a dormant company or the distribution of accumulated profits to shareholders in a tax-efficient way.


An MVL is controlled by shareholders and is a tax-efficient method of distributing the assets of a company. Distribution can be of liquidated assets, assets in specie or of shares in newly formed companies which hold the assets of the liquidated company.


When a company has completed its purpose, or the Directors of a company decide to retire, a tax efficient way of releasing the surplus which may have accumulated, is to place the company into a MVL.


In addition it is helpful when a company is going to be recognized for the planning purpose.
