As a director of a limited company you can propose a Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidation (CVL) if:

  • your company can’t pay its debts – i.e. it is ‘insolvent’
  • the shareholders agree and pass a ‘winding-up resolution’.

Before deciding whether a CVL is your best option, you should speak to an Insolvency Practitioner to get their expert advice. Most Insolvency Practitioners will offer you free initial advice, which you should take advantage of.

Having taken advice from an insolvency expert and decided that a CVL is the right option for you to take, how much should you pay for liquidating your company?

How much should a CVL cost?

The cost of a Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidation will vary depending on the particulars of the company and its situation. The more complex the case, the higher the fee will be. However, a lot of cases are “basic CVLs”, so the fee you pay should reflect that.

For a basic CVL, our fee is from just £2,995 (+VAT, +disbursements).


We are able to charge this low fee because:

  • a basic CVL is relatively simple process
  • we are a small firm, with relatively low overheads
  • our systems and processes are very efficient.

A low cost CVL, with a professional service

There is a lot at stake for your business and you personally, so you should appoint a firm who will not only charge a low fee but will also:

  • give you the best advice for you and your situation
  • guide you through the entire process to ensure that you are fulfilling all your legal obligations to your creditors
  • provide a service that is professional, friendly and nationwide
  • have a wealth of experience in CVLs
  • help you to get funding if you want to start a new business.
