Solvent Solutions

Our restructuring specialists work with a breadth of companies to review the solvent solutions open to them. We review company structures, manage complex corporate simplification projects and advise on a variety of solvent exit strategies, where shareholders are seeking to receive assets and profits in a tax efficient manner.

Our approach

Corporate Simplification

Acquisitive companies often find that over time their structures become unduly complicated and inefficient, with numerous legacy dormant subsidiaries within a group.  This results in increasing compliance and administrative costs, can waste management time and increase risk.

We can help in the formal closure of solvent companies, through managed wind-downs, solvent liquidations and strike-offs.  We work with you to identify target companies within the group that are considered surplus to requirements, checking that they are suitable for removal, identifying any barriers to removal and providing recommendations on next steps. We can strike-off (dissolve) or place into solvent liquidation these surplus companies, leaving a leaner, more efficient corporate structure.

Members’ Voluntary Liquidation (MVL)

Shareholders can extract their wealth from a solvent company, often in a tax-efficient way, using a solvent liquidation process.

We work with directors and shareholders of a company to place it into solvent liquidation and liaise closely with the company’s accountants and tax advisers to ensure any available tax reliefs are claimed.   As liquidators, we realise the assets of the company and distribute these to shareholders, after settling any outstanding debts owed by the company.
