Pre-Convention Workshop: Asset Protection
Earn extra 2 CPD hours by registering the pre-convention workshop!
The 2019 State Convention workshop is focused on the important issues of asset protection in the context of pre and post insolvency considerations from the ATO's point of view. These issues are relevant and topical in light of the significant resources that ASIC has been allocating to stamping out a variety of corporate phoenixing activity, particularly since it is the ATO that is often on the losing end. It is even more relevant to practitioners in the circumstances where advisors can now be held personally liable for promoting phoenix-type arrangements. The workshop focusses on the specific issues of:
- Structuring considerations and transitional issues
- Personal exposure of directors
- PPSA considerations
- Risks and early warning signs for clients and advisors
- Director penalty notices
- Winding up applications
