Craig Thompson writes for Acquisitions Daily on CVAs

Head of Corporate, Craig Thompson's article entitled 'Is a CVA a legitimate tool to save a business?', which discusses what needs to be taken into consideration when filing for a company voluntary agreement (CVA), has been published in Acquisitions Daily.

He highlights that in these challenging times, CVAs are being deployed at a greater rate. Craig states that as a proven method of negotiating reduced payment or standstill terms with creditors to prevent the application of a terminal insolvency procedure, a CVA can be a useful tool.

In the article, Craig covers the advantages of a CVA, including protection from creditors, cost, director control and the Company's maintained reputation. However, he also warns readers of their disadvantages, such as credit issues and potential failure of the CVA.
