In this video I explain the 3 options above in greater detail and alternatives to closing down your company

Your Limited Company or Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) is considered to be solvent when the business assets are greater than the business liabilities. This can be established from the balance sheet, also known as the statement of financial position

Only if your company is in a solvent position can it take advantage of the 3 options above. In a solvent liquidation, it is almost always a voluntary event, in so far as the directors are not compelled to liquidate their company. This would be the case in an insolvent situation. 

When a solvent company is liquidated, once all creditors (organisations and people your business owes money to) are paid, any remaining assets (including liquid cash) is distributed to the shareholders. This distribution (when done correctly) can be very tax efficient and be subject to less than 10% in personal taxation on the shareholders.
