Avoid Illegal Phoenix Activity

Illegal Phoenix activity refers to the fraudulent and deliberate act of transferring the assets of an indebted or insolvent company into a new entity (the Phoenix company) to avoid paying creditors, taxes, and other liabilities of the original company.

This often involves the company directors or owners of the struggling company establishing a new business with a similar or identical structure to the old one. The term “phoenix” signifies the idea of a new entity rising from the ashes of the old, while leaving behind financial obligations.

Identifying Financial Difficulties for Expert Pre-insolvency Advice

Several key financial indicators can signal the need for pre-insolvency considerations. Depending on your unique financial situation, engaging pre-insolvency consultants is a strategic step toward assessing and improving your business’s financial health.

Debt Restructuring Plan

Debt restructuring is a key element in pre-insolvency management, as it can help to avoid insolvency and allow a business to continue operating. It involves negotiating with creditors to reduce the amount of debt owed, or to change the terms of the debt, such as the interest rate or repayment schedule.

What are the Main Different Types of Pre-insolvency Strategies?

In Australia, various pre-insolvency strategies exist to help businesses navigate financial challenges and avoid insolvency. The choice of strategy depends on the specific challenges a business faces and its overall financial situation. Seeking professional advice is crucial to determine the most appropriate approach tailored to the company’s needs.

Voluntary Administration

A company facing financial difficulty or pre-insolvency can appoint a voluntary administrator. During this period, the company is protected from legal actions by creditors, allowing the administrator to assess options and propose a deed of arrangement or recommend winding up.

Deed of Company Arrangement (DOCA)

Under voluntary administration, a DOCA is a formal agreement between the company directors and its creditors. It outlines how the company’s affairs will be dealt with to achieve a better outcome than winding up. It often involves debt business restructuring or the sale of assets.

Restructuring through the Corporations Act 2001

The Corporations Act 2001 introduced a restructuring process to facilitate a simplified and less costly alternative to voluntary administration. It allows eligible small businesses to propose a restructuring plan to creditors.

Each pre-insolvency strategy is unique and may be suitable for different circumstances. The choice of strategy depends on the specific challenges a business faces and its overall financial situation. Seeking professional advice is crucial to determine the most appropriate approach tailored to the company’s needs.
