Company Voluntary Arrangements are increasingly becoming a preferred insolvency procedure which offers a way of trading through a difficult period for the directors of a company suffering cash flow issues or facing tough trading conditions. 

Whether it be because of the need to restructure a company's debt or implement more extensive measures to save a company from the more terminal procedure of liquidation, a Company Voluntary Arrangement can in many instances, not only rescue a company from failure, but save jobs - often resulting in enhanced dividends to the various classes of creditor.

This course offers delegates the opportunity to take a comprehensive journey through the legislative, regulatory and best practice requirements which govern Scottish Company Voluntary Arrangements, including a review of the entry routes into a Company Voluntary Arrangement and the procedure and eligibility requirements to obtain a moratorium for a company.

The course will be technical, practical and interactive, with key note speakers from the insolvency, tax and legal professions.

You will learn under what circumstances a Company Voluntary Arrangement may be appropriate and the statutory procedures required to implement it. 

In addition, you will acquire an enhanced understanding of the guidance that insolvency professionals are required to adhere to when administering a Company Voluntary Arrangement. 

This course is aimed at licensed Insolvency Practitioners and their staff, seeking to gain a comprehensive refresher and update in this area of insolvency or who wish to enhance their knowledge of this area of insolvency in order to enhance their existing skillset.
