On behalf of Worrells, I am pleased to submit our submission in response to the Improving Bankruptcy and Insolvency Laws discussion paper. We support reform and modernisation of insolvency laws and our detailed submissions regarding the proposals set forward by the Government can be found herein.
Worrells would also like to acknowledge that there were a number of other recommendations relating to insolvency law reform by the Productivity Commission in its Inquiry Report on Business Set-Up Transfer and Closure. These include, but are not limited to streamlined SME liquidations and pre-positioning sales. Worrells would welcome further discussion on all the productivity commission recommendations as part of the continued consultation about insolvency law reform.
