bri ferrier and macpherson kelley webinar – insolvency law reforms - do you qualify?

20 October 2020 by John Keenan

Online Wednesday 28 October 12.00 - 1.00pm AEST

The Federal Government has announced that it will be reforming the insolvency laws to allow directors of small businesses which are financially distressed to remain in control with a view to restructuring rather than immediately being placed in the hands of an administrator. The changes will become effective from 1 January 2021.

What about companies that don’t qualify, because they have debts of greater than $1 million? Large companies will be required to work under the existing insolvency laws, without the benefit of the temporary “Safe Harbour”.

This Webinar will examine;

  • Transitioning from the temporary “Safe Harbour”
  • When Voluntary Administration is the only option
  • Interaction between Voluntary Administration and Receivership
  • Voluntary Administration to restructure
  • Voluntary Administration as a first step to winding up
