Can A Company Enter A CVA When It’s In Administration?

Last updated: September 29, 2021

The quick answer

Yes. A limited company can enter into a Creditors Voluntary Arrangement (“CVA”) when it is in Administration as a means of exit from Administration. 

In more detail

Administration is often used as a procedure to protect a company whilst a solution is sought or it is used to give time to get a better return to creditors. In some cases, the exit from Administration will be a CVA. The CVA is proposed to shareholders and creditors by the Administrator (usually with the help of the directors) and if the CVA is approved the control of the company passes back to the directors.

The other routes of exit from Administration are; dissolution of the company, liquidation or a hand back of the company to the directors if it is now solvent.
