My-MVL is a unique online system designed to allow accountants to promote, manage and control Members' Voluntary Liquidations (“MVLs”) for their clients. It reduces the role of the insolvency practitioner, whilst recognising the value of the accountant’s role in relation to tax advice, trade cessation and the preparation of all the information required prior to the MVL commencing.
It has been designed specifically with the contractor market in mind, where the accountant manages most of the clients’ financial information. My-MVL also sits neatly within with any tax advice services provided to contractors throughout the life of their company.
"My-MVL has received 100% positive feedback from my clients and I would recommend it to any adviser. It gets five stars from me!"
Pete Edwards, Partner at Warr & Co Chartered Accountants
