Claims For Directors

To begin with, therefore, establish if your company is Solvent? If so, then why are you proposing, therefore, shutting your company? Perhaps consider a Members Voluntary Liquidation? However, if your company is insolvent? Then consider a Creditors Voluntary Liquidation (CVL). This formerly shuts down your company while dealing with any outstanding issues. A Liquidation requires the appointment of a Licensed Insolvency Practitioner.

Many directors consequently, therefore, do not opt for insolvency due to rescue options Insolvency fees. Company dissolution compared to Insolvency has little cost to closure, though does not finalise the problem. Therefore look at closure options via Insolvency really as Insurance so that nothing will haunt you later.

In summary, therefore, opting for company dissolution invalidates your claim as an employed director which stops any director redundancy pay. Therefore the potential loss to each director may have an average claim of £9000 (Nine Thousand Pounds Approx).
