Insolvency information sheets

The Australian Securities & Investments Commission has eleven (11) insolvency information sheets to assist you if you’re affected by a company’s insolvency and have little or no knowledge of what’s involved.

These plain language information sheets give directors, employees, creditors and shareholders a basic understanding of the three most common company insolvency procedures—liquidation, voluntary administration and receivership. There is an information sheet on the independence of external administrators and one that explains the process for approving the fees of external administrators. A glossary of commonly used insolvency terms is also provided.

The Australian Restructuring Insolvency & Turnaround Association (ARITA), the leading professional organisation in Australia for insolvency practitioners, endorses these publications and encourages its members to make their availability known to affected people.
