COVID-19 has forced many to reconsider their business and succession plans.

In this context, whether a business owner is contemplating "quitting while ahead" by retiring or selling a business, wishing to tidy up dormant companies, or engaging in a corporate simplification process, such as merging operating companies - a members voluntary liquidation is an important tool in winding up companies that have come to the end of their useful life.
