CORPORATE RESTRUCTURING - SOLVENT LIQUIDATIONS
In situations where you want to bring your Company’s life to an end it may be more tax efficient to extract value through a solvent liquidation.
Under the guidance of a Licensed Insolvency Practitioner all assets are sold with creditors being paid in full. Any surplus remaining is distributed to the Company’s Members and is treated as a capital distribution.
Any Property belonging to the Company can also be distributed to the Members ‘in specie’ rather than being liquidated and distributed in cash.
This can also be a useful tool as part of a demerger whereby a Business can be split and distributed to its Members to run independently of each other going forward.
