Company Voluntary Arrangements
Normally the company will then pay a monthly amount for a period of 5 years to satisfy the debt in full. More often than not the total amount paid is less than the total amount owed.
This can be a very effective solution and avoids the company going into any form of liquidation. Therefore it continues as a going concern and its trading position need not be effected.
Often the voluntary arrangement includes the appointment of a company Administrator and therefore often people associate this process with Administration.
