Voluntary Agreement Partnership
If the debtor is unable to pay his debts on time or is insolvent (click on the judicial administrator for a definition of insolvency) or if your partnership is under enormous pressure and you personally fail to manage the partnership and individual partners satisfactorily, a SIMIVA can often be a good solution. A VPA is a legally binding agreement between partners and creditors. Countries that implement the VPA: six countries have concluded the VPA negotiations and are implementing their agreements with the EU: Cameroon, Central African Republic, Ghana, Liberia, Indonesia, Republic of Congo Although no country has yet begun licensing FLEGT, two countries – Ghana and Indonesia – are close to this goal.   Once the proposal is approved by the company`s creditors, they are legally bound and cannot make any further claims about the partnership. However, additional procedures may be required when the personal assets of personal creditor partners are compromised. A voluntary partnership (VPA) is an agreement with unsecured creditors to repay part of the commercial debt. It can be a useful tool to revive viable partnerships towards profitability, and it is designed in the same way as the limited company version, the voluntary agreement of the company (CVA). The data protection representative will always cooperate with the partnership to correct any violations or seek permission to change the terms of the VPA. If the VPA is successfully met, the supervisor will close the VPA and issue a certificate of completion. The partnership can then continue to exist without further insolvency proceedings. Regular payment can allow the partnership and individual debtors to collect all their debt problems (unless the creditor has guarantees such as a mortgage on real estate) and continue with their business and life. Article 4, paragraph 1 of IPO 1994 provides that the voluntary agreement provisions apply in Part I of the IA86 and in the A1 list for insolvent partnerships with certain amendments.
These are defined in IPO1994, Schedule 1, replacing the Insolvent Partnerships (Amendment) (No. 2) Order 2002. The agreement should provide for both the creditors linked to the company and the creditors of each member of the partnership. Like the very similar voluntary agreement (APV), a VPA is a legally binding agreement for the repayment of debts due to creditors through monthly contributions over a typical period of between three and five years. Depending on the circumstances of the business and the amount it can afford to repay each month, this could mean that only a portion of the total debt will be paid. The essence of a VPA is to provide a higher return to partnership creditors than would be possible if the partnership is withdrawn, and it offers a chance to restructure the business. They must outline a proposal as part of the voluntary partnership agreement explaining the reasons for the company`s failure and the current financial problems. The VPA proposal will also contain detailed information on the structure of the procedure, the amount and the amount of the creditors` repayment. A VPA is a procedure in which a partnership can continue to negotiate even if it is insolvent – in other words, the partnership cannot meet its current commitments from the cash flows generated by the transaction.
The VPA partnership contract also works in the best interests of creditors and offers them higher returns than the liquidation of the partnership.
