Safe Harbour – A Case Study (2020)
Safe harbour – a case study. Safe harbour provisions in the Corporations Act that were introduced in September 2017 are not well known in the business community, and frowned upon by insolvency practitioners, and even ASIC! This may be partly due to a minority of unscrupulous advisors giving all advisors a bad name and partly because of the ambiguity in the legislation. This webinar will address how safe harbour provisions can be used and the way they were intended.
- Understand when to use the safe harbour provisions, the requirement to avail yourself of the legislation, the benefits of using safe harbour provisions, and risks for safe harbour advisors.
