If my company is in trouble should I get in touch with a liquidator?

Usually when a company owner finds himself or herself in an impracticable financial position they are advised by their bookkeeper, their solicitor or even their friends to contact a Liquidator and place the company into liquidation. Be rather careful about this. We have learned, here at Liquidators Bundaberg, that most people believe that due to the fact that you are paying the liquidator they will look after your best interests and serve to help you to get you back on your feet. HOWEVER THIS IS ABSOLUTELY NOT THE CASE!

Liquidators Bundaberg is on your side

Although administrators and receivers are normally nice individuals, their duty, once they are appointed, is simply to your creditors (people you owe money to) as well as to the courts. These guys are to amass as much money as they can from the liquidated business to repay these creditors. That is simply all. If, for one second, you feel they will protect your best interests, you are sadly mistaken.

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

One Business Owner’s Story

I figured out I was in trouble when the bank refused to lend me any more against the farm. This home has been in the family for years and the thought 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 Bundaberg which I didn’t do, of course. I found this other liquidation company and they said that’s the only escape. I realized I had significant debt, but it just appeared like I had no alternative. My accountant said that because I am paying for the liquidator and that it was going to be a voluntary liquidation that I would certainly be taken care of. WRONG!

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

The moment I signed the paperwork the liquidators requested 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 control of each and every single thing; it was simply all gone. The next day my savings account was frozen and what I thought was going to be a beneficial situation became my worst nightmare. I lost everything!

Can I continue to run a business if I have been the director of a company that has been liquidated?

Yes, you can still run a business. No, you can not still be the director of the company that has been liquidated. This is one of the most frequent questions we are asked. Undoubtedly, there are policies that need to be followed, and you have to ensure you structure things in properly moving forward. Liquidation does not will need to be the end of your business life, as a lot of people think it does. We can help you to do this and reconstruct a new life after liquidation. There are options, but in most cases people simply don’t know just what they are. At Liquidators Bundaberg, we can discuss your options and help you accomplish your goals.

Your friends love you, but normally have no thought to what they are often recommending to you. They’ve most likely heard that if you wish to begin again you will need to get rid of 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 critically important is that every business owner knows these changes and the serious nature of all of them and how they will certainly impact you and your business. If you have a tax debt then you may be likely issued with a Director Penalty Notice by the ATO.

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

The purpose of a Director Penalty Notice is to make directors liable for their business’s unpaid tax debt. As a director, you will no longer manage 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 get expert advice, as we have numerous options you may should think about. Simply call liquidators Bundaberg on 1300 818 575.

What if pay no attention to the notice?

There may be significant consequences for not adhering to the ATO’s notice; this can include losing personal assets like vehicles, 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 out a specified sum of money within 21 days from the date of the delivery of the demand on the Debtor Company.

If the debt is contested, or if there are exceptions in the document, the company should immediately get independent legal advice and apply to the Court to set the demand aside on the premise that the financial debt, then the subject of the Statutory Demand is in fact contested. This application MUST be made within 21 days.

What happens if the Statutory Demand expires unsatisfied?

Section 95( A) of the Corporations Act stipulates that a company is solvent if it can pay its debts as and also when they fall due. Accordingly, the test as to whether or not a company 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 supply ‘proof’, which is actually sufficient for a creditor to inquire to the Court for the appointment of a liquidator to the company.

Can the Statutory Demand just turn up in the post?

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

WINDING UP NOTICE

Bankrupt Bundaberg,Bankruptcy Bundaberg,Insolvency Bundaberg

What is a Wind-Up Notice?

A wind-up notice commonly follows a Statutory Demand. If a business is not able to pay the debts then the Court has the power to wind it up and appoint a liquidator whose duty it is to turn the assets into cash and disburse the cash in the order set out in the Corporations Act. Simply put, this notice is basically a letter notifying you that on a certain date a liquidator will be appointed by the courts to take control of your company if you don’t pay the debt.

Who can send me a Wind-Up Notice?

The creditor who gets the appointment of the liquidator and the liquidator take priority in relation to their costs, as do certain employee entitlements. The rest is distributed equally between unsecured creditors..

Bankrupt Bundaberg,Bankruptcy Bundaberg,Insolvency Bundaberg

Will I be actually bound for my businesses debt?

No. The liquidation of a company does not instantly imply the director will be actually made bankrupt; however, the method of winding up a business resembles the process of having a person declared bankrupt. Having said that, the ATO can provide a Director’s Penalty Notice at any time, so it is really ideal to act quickly. For a cost-free consultation call Liquidators Bundaberg on 1300 818 575.

What happens in the event that I can not pay the debt within the 21 Days?

A liquidator will be actually appointed and you will not be the director of your company. The judge will choose a liquidator who then takes over full control of your company. All of the clients, cheque accounts, assets, cash, money that’s owed to the company and your buildings are no longer yours. Put simply, it’s over. The company you have built is no longer yours. All the assets will be sold, your office, shop or factory will be taken control of by the liquidators (they will even change the locks) and your services are actually no longer called for. Every element of your business will now be under the administration of the liquidator.
