Heralded as the most significant reforms to Australia’s insolvency framework in almost 30 years, the recent changes announced by the Federal Government will help more small businesses restructure and survive the economic impact of COVID-19. With the reforms likely to cover around 76 per cent of businesses subject to insolvencies today, it is vital that advisers of small business are across the key changes. This presentation covers the important changes and their practical implications, including:

  • The introduction of a new debt restructuring process for incorporated businesses with liabilities of less than $1 million

  • Moving from a one-size-fits-all “creditor in possession” model to a more flexible “debtor in possession” model

  • Development of restructuring plans – timeframes and requirements

  • A simplified liquidation pathway for small businesses to allow faster and lower cost liquidation

  • Red tape cuts for the insolvency sector

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).
