BACKGROUND INFORMATION

When a company is insolvent or is likely to become insolvent, it is faced with one of two options: (i) dissolution & liquidation or (ii) company recovery. This session will provide attendees with an introduction into the modes of dissolution and consequent types of liquidation with a particular focus on insolvent liquidation and the potential recovery of insolvent companies as an alternative route to liquidation. Attendees will also gain a practical understanding of how this all works in practice, particularly in court.

Specific topics to be covered during the session

  • Dissolution and Liquidation (solvent, insolvent, court and voluntary) of Companies
  • Directors’ Obligations when the company is facing insolvency
  • Liability of auditors and accountants when the company is facing insolvency
  • Company Reconstruction and Recovery as an alternative route to liquidation

Why is the session of relevance to our members?

For members of the MIA, this session will seek to provide them with the legal perspective and understanding of dissolution and liquidation of companies with a particular focus on insolvency and the legal consequences a company which is “unable to pay its debts” may face as well as the potential liability they may incur as accountants or auditors of the insolvent company

Target Audience

Directors, Company Secretaries, Auditors, Accountants
