Q&A with an Insolvency Lawyer



Never before has it been more important to get information on what can be done in challenging business and economic times like this.



Join Business Women Australia National Director, Lyn Hawkins along with members and guests as we hear from Kelly Parker, Director of Murfett Legal, as we delve into the issues around Insolvency and Turnaround.



This is the perfect opportunity to hear from an experienced insolvency and turnaround lawyer. We will cover:



  • What happens when a business cannot pay its debts?
  • Is this a good time to access external funds to meet liabilities?
  • What if the business is struggling to make a profit?
  • How long should we keep operating and when is the best time to close the doors?
  • Should we extend our overdraft?
  • Who is responsible for repaying debts to a Liquidator or creditors?
  • What are the potential criminal penalties (as we understand them today)?
  • What about the Government “survival” incentives?
  • What happens if…
  • How have the rules changed?
