  • The PPSA and Commercial Property Leasing

    The Personal Properties Securities Act 2009 (Cth) (PPSA) and commercial property leases to the untrained eye appear to be fundamentally separate areas of law in that the former deals with personal property and the latter land. However, there are instances where the law overlaps and the failure to register certain items, particular in an insolvency scenario, may lead to the loss of priority. This whitepaper examines when a commercial lease will equate to a “PPS Lease” and offer effective ways for entrepreneurs and Small to medium enterprises to protect personal property.

  • 7 things that SME enterprise directors need to be aware of when they hit rocky times

    When a business hits rocky times the directors of small-to-medium sized enterprises (SMEs) need to develop a clear business strategy to ensure they can achieve a desired outcome. This whitepaper examines the fundamental issues that directors of SMEs need to be aware of when a business finds itself in turbulent waters and how the formal appointment of an administrator or liquidator may be necessary if a business is insolvent.

  • Challenges to voluntary administration for SME creditors

    Small to medium enterprises (SMEs) are an important part of the economy and contribute half of employment and over a third of economic activity. It is therefore in the interests of all parties to ensure the sustainability of SMEs. This whitepaper analyses the voluntary administration process and whether it fulfils its purpose to maximise the prospects of corporate rescue and, if salvage is not possible, to get a better return for creditors.
