Members’ Voluntary Liquidation
As life changes, so do our priorities and future plans. Your future plans may not involve running a business anymore and it may be time to wind up its affairs.
A Members’ Voluntary Liquidation is only suitable for solvent businesses. It is a formal process where the company’s outstanding matters are settled, all assets are realised, all statutory clearances are obtained and the company will ultimately be deregistered. There are requirements to a Members’ Voluntary Liquidation, including the directors of the company signing a declaration of solvency. This declaration will state that the company will be able to pay all its debts in full within 12 months of the commencement of the wind up.
During a Members’ Voluntary Liquidation, Insolvency Options are qualified to act as a Liquidator in the process of winding up your business’ affairs. We ensure that the outcome is cost effective and beneficial to all stakeholders.
As with winding up any venture or business, there are a few steps involved. Insolvency Options will help you through each step to achieve a successful result. If you are unsure if your company is solvent or if a Members’ Voluntary Liquidation is the best option for your business, call our team on 1800 463 328.
What is a Members' Voluntary Liquidation?
A Members’ Voluntary Liquidation is a formal process where a company’s outstanding matters are settled, all assets are realised, all statutory clearances are obtained and the company becomes deregistered.
When does a Members' Voluntary Liquidation occur?
A Members’ Voluntary Liquidation occurs when directors of a solvent company intend to wind up the company and its affairs.
Can a Members' Voluntary Liquidation occur with an insolvent company?
No. A Members’ Voluntary Liquidation is only applicable for solvent companies. When company directors intend to wind up an insolvent company, this is known as a Creditors Voluntary Liquidation.
Are there requirements for a Members' Voluntary Liquidation?
Yes. The company directors must sign a declaration that the company is solvent. This declaration confirms that the company is able to pay off its debts in full within 12 months of the commencement of the Members’ Voluntary Liquidation process.
What if I am unsure if my company is solvent (or insolvent)?
If you are unsure whether your company is solvent, it is likely you need a professional (such as Insolvency Options) to make the assessment. It is advised that you call our team to discuss your company’s financial situation.
What happens after the declaration of solvency is signed?
Once the declaration is signed (and lodged with ASIC), the company members must pass a special resolution to wind up the company. The company must appoint a liquidator to wind up the company and its affairs from when the special resolution is passed.
What happens after the liquidation period is complete?
After the liquidator has finalised the winding up process, the company will be deregistered three months after the final forms have been lodged.

Business Valuation Services
Business valuations are a valuable tool for many purposes. They are used for buying or selling a business, determining the value of shares for shareholder agreements or for keyman insurance purposes. Business valuations provide you the necessary stated worth of your business to make important decisions.
Business valuations also provide an objective assessment of the strengths and weaknesses that underpin a business’ value. A detailed report of a company’s assets and liabilities can minimise the risks associated with the purchase of your next business venture.
To benefit from an independent business valuation, contact our experts today on 1800 463 328.
