During uncertain times and during your business life cycle, experiencing financial distress is not uncommon.
Even in the best economic conditions, running a business involves a substantial degree of risk. Although insolvency is a very real possibility for many Australian enterprises, it can often be mitigated with the right advice and tools at the right time, you can still reduce risk, maximise value and recover from distressed situations.
If you don’t act fast to manage your challenges, they will quickly escalate into a crisis and you may face liquidation or personal bankruptcy. That’s why if your business is in distressed situations, it’s essential to seek expert advice as early as possible so that you can explore all options available to your business and implement a strategy quickly to restructure, turnaround and save your business.

Voluntary administration is designed to resolve your company’s future. It provides your company with breathing space and time for you to find a way, if possible, to save your company. After taking control of your business, a voluntary administrator is appointed to investigate and report to creditors about your business and financial affairs. After a creditors’ meeting, your company may be returned to you, placed into liquidation, or enter into a deed of company arrangement.
A DOCA follows voluntary administration. It’s a binding arrangement between a company and its creditors governing how the company’s affairs will be dealt with.
The benefit of this type of arrangement is that it enables a business to continue to trade as a “going concern” and ideally turnaround its financial situation.
The SBRP was released by the Australian Government as a restructuring tool to benefit and support small businesses in financial distress. It allows small businesses to restructure their business debts (<$1m) with creditors to maximise their opportunity for survival.
The Safe Harbour regime provides protection for company directors from personal liability for insolvent trading if the company is genuinely attempting to restructure. It aims to encourage directors to seek advice early on how to restructure and save financially distressed but viable companies, rather than closing down prematurely to avoid personal liability. This supports a culture of entrepreneurship and innovation, by providing breathing space for distressed businesses.
