You’ve heard about Insolvent Trading

What does it mean in plain English

At Dissolve we are experienced in providing a range of solutions. We’ve listed a few below.
But there are a whole range of possibilities.

The Stick

dpn-line

The stick – If a company is insolvent then a director may be personally liable for debts that the company incurs.

So what? A director will need to take action to ensure no further debts are incurred, or if they are, then they are paid in full.

The Carrot

dpn-line

The carrot – the Law provides a range of practical options for directors who suspect their company is insolvent.

So what? If a director acts quickly, those steps can save the business and protect the director from personal liability.

So, what does
“Personal Liability” mean?

If a company has a tax debt then it is just that – a debt due by the company and a director is not personally liable for that debt. But if some of that debt is for staff PAYG deductions or Superannuation then the ATO can make a director liable that debt.

The ATO makes a director liable by simply sending a Notice by mail – no Court action or Lawyers are required!

Does that mean your house is potentially on the line – yes!

That sounds bad!! Are there solutions?

Absolutely! There are a number of actions that can be taken to either avoid the personal liability or reduce its impact.

But the opposite is also true – if you do nothing then you, as the director, are likely to be personally liable for debts incurred by the company.
