Insolvency information for directors, employees, creditors and shareholders
ASIC has 11 insolvency information sheets to assist you if you’re affected by a company’s insolvency and have little or no knowledge of what’s involved.
These plain language information sheets give directors, employees, creditors and shareholders a basic understanding of the three most common company insolvency procedures—liquidation, voluntary administration and receivership. There is an information sheet on the independence of external administrators and one that explains the process for approving the fees of external administrators. A glossary of commonly used insolvency terms is also provided.
The Insolvency Practitioners Association (IPA), the leading professional organisation in Australia for insolvency practitioners, endorses these publications and encourages its members to make their availability known to affected people.
You can download a copy of the following insolvency information sheets as PDF files.
The information sheets are also available from the IPA website at www.ipaa.com.au. The IPA website also contains the IPA’s Code of Professional Practice for Insolvency Professionals, which applies to IPA members.
