Managing your company debts

Your company can face bankruptcy if you allow debts to accrue. On the other hand, you may be owed funds and be considering taking action to recoup what’s owed.
{{ tag.label }} {{ tag.label }} $vuetify.icons.faTimes

If your company has debts it can’t service, it may face legal proceedings that result in its closure. On the flipside, if your company is owed funds, you will want to take measures to recoup them.

There are profound consequences for companies that fail to pay their debts on time. Creditors may take legal action that result in your business being ‘wound up’. This resource outlines some of the consequences of failing to pay debts in a timely manner.

Your business may have received a statutory demand from a creditor that may make an application seeking ‘winding up’ of your company if the statutory demand isn’t paid or replied to. It’s therefore critical that you satisfy the requirements of the statutory demand within 21 days of service.

If your company is the one to serve the statutory demand, there are certain processes you need to abide by.

Whether your company is in debt or is chasing non-payment of funds, HIA suggests you read this resource to gain information about what’s involved and then seek independent legal advice.
