Business Insolvency

As a company director, your primary duty is to the company’s shareholders. However, if your company is insolvent or there is a real risk of insolvency, your responsibilities expand to include creditors, including employees with outstanding entitlements such as salary or superannuation. You also have to prevent your company from trading if it is insolvent. Before you incur new debt, you must consider whether you have reasonable grounds to suspect that the company will become insolvent due to the debt. Understanding these consequences before declaring insolvency is essential, as is determining if it is the right decision for you, the shareholders, your employees, and your creditors under ASIC insolvency regulations.

What happens when you declare insolvency?

A trustee is appointed to oversee the sale of assets and the distribution of the proceeds to creditors. The trustee arranges the writing-up of the assets to be included in the estate and sale. In addition, the trustee meets with the creditors. We provide guidance and assistance with this process at the Insolvency Advisory Centre.

For limited companies or limited liability partnerships, the consequences of insolvency will mean that the business will go into liquidation, stop trading, or go into administration and be sold. In some cases, the outcome may be a voluntary administration arrangement.
