Bankruptcy and Insolvency FAQs
When a company files insolvency, that means it is unable to pay its debts when they are due. Depending on the circumstances, the three most common things that happen are: the company is placed into voluntary administration, the company and its assets are liquidated, and/or the company is placed into receivership.
Subsequently, insolvency notices are placed in newspapers or published on the ASIC’s insolvency notices website.

No, you can not trade while insolvent. Doing so may incur serious penalties. If you have concerns about insolvency, including your rights and responsibilities as a director, you should consult a registered liquidator, insolvency accountant or insolvency lawyer.
In short, no. Bankruptcy does not clear all debts.
Debts that remain can include:
- Court-ordered fines and penalties
- Student loans (HECS, HELP, SFSS)
- New debt incurred after filing for bankruptcy
- Child support and maintenance payments.
For individuals in Australia, bankruptcy allows you to keep most ordinary household items, which can include furniture, TVs, computers, and appliances. Depending on their value, you may also be able to keep your car, and the tools you use to earn a living.
For companies, insolvency generally means that all assets of the company can be sold. This includes property, vehicles, stock and even fixtures and fittings inside the business premises. Other company assets that can be sold include non-tangible assets such as the company website, patents, trade marks and other intellectual property. These funds can then be used to pay off as many creditors as possible.
There may be options to increase the likelihood that the company will survive, which include a debt-restructuring process or simplified liquidation processes.
A personal insolvency agreement (PIA) is an agreement that allows you to pay off your debt in a way that takes into account your circumstances and current financial situation.
You may pay more under a PIA compared to declaring bankruptcy. If you have a question or a problem that you need to solve, it is best to seek legal advice from a lawyer.
