Safe Harbour

Is Your Business Eligible for Safe Harbour?

The Safe Harbour legislation was introduced in 2017 to alter the director’s decision process prior to appointing a voluntary administrator or liquidator and rewards such behaviour with protection against personal liability for insolvent trading of a corporation. If the Directors adopt the prescribed steps, then personal liability for insolvent trading is excluded from that point on. Note here that the directors must have met all the legislative requirements to take advantage of the safe harbour.

The primary trigger is that the directors can show they were developing or taking a course of action that at the time was reasonably likely to lead to a better outcome for the company than proceeding to immediate administration or liquidation.
