The PPSA remains a headache in terms of its practical application and there have now been many major financial losses arising from the legislation.  This session revisits some core issues with the PPSA, with a focus on how these make a difference in real world situations where PPSA risks arise.  This session includes:

  • What is a ‘security interest’ – a reminder about when the Act can apply – assignments of debt, leases, hires and bailments, completion arrangements and ‘informal security’.
  • PPSA’s unforgiving priority rules – case studies.
  • PPS leases – the major May 2017 amendments to the Act and the new 2 year threshold.  Can you stay out of the PPSA?  What if your short term hire or bailment  is about to turn into a PPS lease?  Can you safely register at that time?
  • The developing law on extensions of time for late registration.  How to deal with a registration that is incorrect or out of time and what must the client be told?
  • Statutory and common law liens – how are they affected?
  • Processed or commingled goods and proceeds– does the security attach?
  • Doing the deal - searching the register – what is acceptable practice? 
  • When is it no longer safe to rely on a transitional registration? 
  • Update on the reforms recommended by the Whittaker Review

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.
At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
