 ABOUT THE WEBINAR
PPS registrations pop up in the most unexpected places, particularly in the case of business acquisitions – invariably they will need to be cleared at or before completion otherwise the purchaser will shy away.  More than that, though, PPS throws up all sorts of weird and wonderful problems in business acquisitions.  If you don’t want to be sued you need to be across them. This session covers:

  • Typical PPS problems which occur prior to settlement:
    • AllPAPs/GSAs
    • PMSIs
  • Purchaser and vendor due diligence in relation to PPSR
  • PPS – what clauses do you need in your contract?
  • Vendor information and warranties relating to PPS
  • Understanding the import of the proposed PPSA changes
  • PPSA changes in relation to leases – impact on business acquisitions
  • Recent examples of PPS problems in business acquisitions
  • Recent cases in relation to business acquisitions
 PRESENTER
Our presenter

Peter Mills, Special Counsel, Thynne + Macartney, Brisbane 

Peter’s area of expertise for the last 14 years has been in Personal Property Securities Act (2009) (PPS), Creditor Recoveries, and Insolvency.

Peter is a recognised expert in the PPS and its interaction with other laws and registers (including insolvency under the Corporations Act (Cth)).

Peter is admitted as a lawyer in both Australia and Papua New Guinea and regularly advises interstate and overseas clients.  His extensive client base includes controllers (voluntary administrators and liquidators), trade creditors and suppliers, accountants, SME’s, subsidiaries of domestic and international companies, and other law firms (domestic and international).

Peter regularly advises clients as to the PPS registration process and how to minimise documentation and record keeping, saving tens (sometimes hundreds) of thousands of dollars in the PPS registration process. He also advises on the recovery of assets and debts, despite liquidators being appointed, by using the PPS instead of the courts.

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).
