 Insolvency advisory centre | what is receivership

“Receivership” is one way a secured creditor (usually a bank that is owed money) can attempt to collect the money they are owed.

Receivership of a company occurs when a secured creditor appoints a receiver to take control of some or all of the company’s assets. In particular circumstances, a receiver may be assigned by the court.

A receiver is an independent and suitably qualified person. Their role is to collect and sell enough of the charged assets to repay the debt owed to the secured creditor, pay out the money collected in the order required by law, and report any possible offences or irregularities to ASIC. The receiver’s primary duty is to the secured creditor that appointed them.

What Is Receivership and What To Expect?

  • The receiver will collect and sell enough assets to repay the secured creditors’ debt.
  • After the raised money has been distributed to the creditors
  • Any funds or assets left over are paid to the company or external administrators.
