Case Study

Client Overview

Industry: E-commerce – Children’s Sportwear

Location: Online

Company Size: 10 employees

The Challenge

The founding director was looking to wind up their successful children’s sportwear company, which was incorporated in 2020 to enable them to move onto the next stage in their life.

Our Approach

Following an initial consultation with one of our experts, we were able to establish the motives and intentions of the director and ensure that a Members’ Voluntary Liquidation (MVL) would be the best course of action. The Company would be properly wound up in a tax efficient manner.

Working closely with the accountant and director we agreed a strategy for the MVL. Once all liabilities had been paid and assets realised, we prepared the liquidation paperwork including a Declaration of Solvency for the director to sign. The Company was placed into liquidation and we made the official notifications.

The Outcome

Within 6 weeks of the liquidation once the creditors claim period had expired, we were able to make an initial distribution to the shareholders. On receipt of HMRC tax clearances and approval, a final distribution was made and the final reports were filed with Companies House to trigger the dissolution of the Company.

The whole process took 7 months from the initial chats and quotation to finalising the case.

Client Feedback
