Company Voluntary Arrangement

Company Voluntary Arrangements (CVAs) are a fairly common device and can be used by an insolvent company to help reduce and reschedule payments to its creditors. A CVA must be approved by creditors before it can be implemented and provides a way for a struggling business to improve its cash flow and work through its difficulties.

A CVA takes place between the company and its creditors and can be tailored to suit specific circumstances. Typically CVAs can last for three to five years. Potentially CVAs can prevent a business from going into administration however there may be other options to explore before considering this route.
