A Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) is a powerful tool; providing your company has a viable future?

A CVA helps your company stay clear of liquidation. A CVA allows you to pay your company’s creditors.

What is a CVA?

A Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) remains a formal financial arrangement between a company and its creditors. The agreement demonstrates that the company remains unable to pay its debts, but will pay them out of future profits. A company will pay towards its debts for an agreed period, and once finished, obligations remaining remain written off.

Essential Elements of a successful Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA):

  • A future viable business, with the potential to return to profitability.
  • Commercially structured;
  • Obtaining suitable levels of working capital in addition to the restructuring of debt;
  • Management allowing change;
  • Determination & hard work though required throughout the duration of the CVA;
  • Directors need to employ a skilled Insolvency Practitioner;
  • Careful forecasting & Cash Flows.

Who can propose a CVA?

The directors of the companies may propose a CVA. Should the company is in administration, the administrator can propose a CVA. A CVA can only happen if a company is insolvent or contingently insolvent.

How long does it take?

Usually, 7-10 weeks; however, the summary below is possible if all the required information is available from the outset.

Review of the CVA tool.

Please note, though, a CVA is not a panacea for your company, but a compelling structure for reform and protection of a distressed but viable company. However, it is challenging to propose and gain approval. Obtaining CVA approval remains the most straightforward bit of rescue and turnaround. Ensuring a turnaround works, though, is more complicated and requires professional help. 

A CVA should:

  1. Maximise creditors’ interests;
  2. Maintain viable though struggling distressed companies;
  3. Conserve economic activity and save jobs;
  4. In time restoring value to the creditors;
  5. Provide a real chance of a return for shareholders.
