The Government has undertaken the most significant reforms to Australia’s insolvency framework in 30 years as part of its economic recovery plan to keep businesses in business and Australians in jobs.
Key elements of the reforms include:
- The introduction of a new debt restructuring process for incorporated businesses with liabilities of less than $1 million;
- Moving from a rigid one-size-fits-all “creditor in possession” model to a more flexible “debtor in possession” model which will allow eligible small businesses to restructure their existing debts while remaining in control of their business; and
- A rapid twenty business day period for the development of a restructuring plan by a small business restructuring practitioner, followed by fifteen business days for creditors to vote on the plan.
