Members Voluntary Liquidation - MVL

At Salient Insolvency, we can offer expert guidance with all matters relating to company liquidations including the process of membership voluntary liquidation (MVL).

An MVL is sometimes a desirable course of action when the owners or directors of a business want to wind it up. As such, MVLs are an appropriate choice for solvent firms. We can advise you of what to do if your business is insolvent, too, of course. That said, an MVL will still require careful management including understanding what a company’s responsibilities are with respect to any outstanding debt it may have.

At Salient Insolvency, we have a wealth of experience with all types of voluntary liquidation processes to share. If you would like to discuss the implications of proceeding with an MVL or would like to know more because another shareholder or director has suggested applying for one, then we are at your disposal.


Although there are other options available to business owners, MVLs are often considered to be one of the most tax-efficient ways of winding a company up.

This is often true but it will depend on the level of debt the firm has on its books as well as the value of its assets and reserves. Because all companies face unique financial circumstances, turning to experts in insolvency practice, like those at Salient Insolvency, will make a lot of sense. We can advise you on whether it is in your interests to proceed with an MVL as well as when you would be best looking into other options.
