If my company is actually in trouble should I contact a liquidator?

In most cases when a business owner finds himself or herself in an impracticable financial position they are advised by their bookkeeper, their solicitor or perhaps their friends to consult with a Liquidator and place the business into liquidation. Be very careful about this. We have gotten to know, here at Liquidators Brisbane, that many people believe that simply because you are paying the liquidator they will protect your best interests and help you to get you back on your feet. BUT THIS IS REALLY NOT THE CASE!

Liquidators Brisbane are on your side

Although administrators and receivers are normally nice individuals, their obligation, once they are appointed, is simply to your creditors (people you owe money to) and to the courts. They are to collect as much money as they can from the liquidated business to pay these creditors. That is simply it. If, for one instant, you feel they will watch out for your best interests, you are unfortunately mistaken.

Once you have signed those documents to appoint liquidators to your company; that is it! You no longer get any say over your business. The liquidator will do whatever they feel is in the best interests of the creditors and, guess what, often you have actually just bought the death of your company.

One Business Owner’s Story

I saw I was in trouble when the bank would not lend me any more against the farm. This home has been in the family for years and the prospect of having to give it up was too much. I called my financial advisor and my accountant, and they both urged me to go and see Liquidators Brisbane which I didn’t do, of course. I found this other liquidation firm and they said that’s the only escape. I understood I had significant debt, but it just looked like I had no option. My accountant said that because I am shelling out for the liquidator and that it was going to be a voluntary liquidation that I would be taken care of. WRONG!

I found some Liquidators, they appeared professional and qualified and these guys said they would help me as much as they could to work through my money issues. I had no idea what was going to happen. They appeared to understand my circumstance; I had some money coming in and a sale of some equipment going through.

The second I signed the documents the liquidators asked for the keys and that was it. Everything was taken out of my hands, the sale of the equipment was completely taken control of, the money I had coming in was gone, they took over every single thing; it was simply all gone. The next day my savings account was frozen and what I believed was going to be a beneficial situation ended up my worst nightmare. I lost everything!

Can I keep running a business if I have been a director of a business that has been liquidated?

Yes, you can continue to run a business. No, you can not continue to be the director of the company that has been liquidated. This is one of the most frequent questions we are asked.

Liquidation does not need to be the end of your business life, as so many people think it does. We can really help you to do this and construct a new life after liquidation.

Be prepared. Liquidators don’t work with you, no matter what you pay them. Your creditors don’t help you, no matter just how much of their bill you pay them. Your friends love you, but usually have no idea to what they are recommending to you. They’ve probably heard that if you wish to begin again you have to throw away the company through a liquidator and it is an simple assumption to make that if you pay a liquidator they will help you.

ATO – DIRECTOR’S PENALTY NOTICE

Directors Be Warned

What is extremely important is that each and every business owner is aware of these changes and the serious nature of all of them and how they will impact you and your business. If you have a tax debt then you may be issued with a Director Penalty Notice by the ATO.

Bankruptcy Brisbane,Bankrupt Brisbane,Insolvency Brisbane

What does it mean if I have a Director’s Penalty Notice?

The purpose of a Director Penalty Notice is to make directors responsible for their company’s unpaid tax debt. As a director, you will not be able to avoid personal liability for a PAYG ATO debt, which has a Director Penalty Notice, if the following applies:

  1. Your debt is older than three months and or your debt was not reported to the ATO within 3 months of the due date.
  2. As a director, you may also be liable for your companys unpaid superannuation liability when you get a penalty.
  3. Directors, and associates of directors, may now also be liable for a new personal income tax liability. This will make directors and their associates possibly liable for a companys unpaid PAYG withholding liability.

Do I have any choices?

Yes. If your company has an ATO debt or you have received a Director’s Penalty Notice, it is crucial that you ask for expert advice, as we have numerous options you may should think about. Simply call liquidators Brisbane on 1300 818 575.

What if I disregard the notice?

There may be considerable repercussions for not adhering to the ATO’s notice; this can include losing personal assets like cars, property or shares, and personal bankruptcy for the business’s debts.

STATUTORY DEMANDS

Just what is a Statutory Demand?

A Statutory Demand is a demand made under 459E of the Corporations Act. This file is not issued by the Court. A Statutory Demand needs that the Debtor Company pay a specified sum of money within 21 days from the period of the delivery of the demand on the Debtor Company.

If the debt is contended, or if there are exceptions in the document, the company should right away get separate legal advice and apply to the Court to set the demand aside on the premise that the debt, then the target of the Statutory Demand is actually contested. This application MUST be made within 21 days.

What happens if the Statutory Demand expires unsatisfied?

Section 95( A) of the Corporations Act requires that a business is solvent if it can pay its debts as and when they fall due. Accordingly, the test as to whether or not a business is insolvent is that it is unable to pay its debts as and when they are generally due.

Under Section 459C of the Act, the company is presumed to be insolvent if a company has failed to adhere to a Statutory Demand. Then, the delivery to a Debtor Company and non-compliance with the Statutory Demand will provide ‘proof’, which is actually sufficient for a creditor to inquire to the Court for the appointment of a liquidator to the business.

Can the Statutory Demand just turn up in the post?

Yes, it might be delivered face-to-face or simply show up in the mail as registered mail.

WINDING UP NOTICE

Bankruptcy Brisbane,Bankrupt Brisbane,Insolvency Brisbane

What exactly is a Wind-Up Notice?

A wind-up notice often follows a Statutory Demand. If a business is unable to pay its own debts then the Court has the power to wind it up and appoint a liquidator whose obligation it is to turn the assets into cash and disburse the cash in the order started in the Corporations Act. Simply put, this notice is essentially a letter notifying you that on a certain date a liquidator will be appointed by the courts to take over your company if you won’t pay the debt.

Who can send me a Wind-Up Notice?

The creditor who secures the appointment of the liquidator and the liquidator take priority in relation to their expenses, as do particular employee entitlements. The leftovers is distributed equally among unsecured creditors.

Will I be individually obligated for my businesses debt?

No. The liquidation of a company does not automatically imply the director will be made bankrupt; however, the process of winding up a business is similar to the process of having a person declared bankrupt. Having said that, the ATO can release a Director’s Penalty Notice whenever, so it is actually ideal to take action quickly. For a no charge consultation call Liquidators Brisbane on 1300 818 575..

What happens if I can not pay the debt within the 21 Days?

A liquidator will be actually appointed and you will definitely not be the director of your company. The judge will assign a liquidator who then assumes full control of your company. All of the clients, cheque accounts, assets, cash, money that’s owed to the business and your buildings are no longer yours. In other words, it’s over. The company you have built over the years is no longer yours. All the assets will be sold, your office, shop or factory will be seized by the liquidators (they will even change the locks) and your services are no longer required. Every facet of your business will now be under the administration of the liquidator.
