WHAT IS LIQUIDATION?

Liquidation is the only way to fully wind up the affairs of a company and end its existence.

A registered liquidator will dismantle the company’s structure by conducting appropriate investigations and enabling a fair distribution of company assets to its creditors.

Liquidation occurs either because the company cannot pay all of its debts (i.e. it is insolvent), or its members want to voluntarily end the structure and have it struck off from the Australian Securities and Investments Commission.

WHAT IS BANKRUPTCY?

Bankruptcy is a legal process where a trustee is appointed to administer an insolvent person’s affairs, in order to provide a fair distribution of that person’s assets to their creditors. Bankruptcy is a legitimate and just way for a debtor to solve their debt problems, and it is one way for creditors to take action against someone for unpaid debts.

The Bankruptcy Act 1966 exists to protect debtors (i.e. the bankrupt) and creditors.

The debtor is protected from being pursued by creditors and, with limited exceptions, is released from their debts at the end of the bankruptcy. Bankruptcy provides a debtor with a fresh start.

Bankruptcy protects creditors’ interests by having an independent, qualified accountant control and investigate the bankrupt’s affairs, and collect and distribute the bankrupt’s assets.

PARTNERING UP WITH A PROFESSIONAL ADVISOR

Commonly, it is the accountant, solicitor, or advisor that have the onerous task of discovering their client’s true financial position. It doesn’t end there a responsible advisor will use this information to provide options and appropriate advice that will best serve their client.

We believe we have a duty to ensure advisors and their clients are well-informed and supported on insolvency issues. We recognise that the level of dependence on advisors is understated and for this reason we believe we need to be “working together”.
