  • Directors Liability for Insolvency: Do what you say and perform your duties or face personal liability

    AUSTRALIA
    Insolvency

    Duties on directors when faced with insolvency
    The point at which a company becomes insolvent is not always clear. The Courts will consider “various indicia of insolvency”, including the company’s ability to raise further capital and access to alternative finance. In some situations, a director or related entity may be willing and able to contribute funds to the company to allow it to pay its debts. This can affect whether a company is viewed as solvent or not. Once insolvency is reasonably suspected, directors must prevent the company from incurring further debts or risk being held personally liable for the debts incurred.
