Voluntary Administration (VA)

Voluntary Administration is designed by the Corporations Act to provide an insolvent Company with breathing space of between 25 to 30 days whilst the Company and its creditors decide where the Company’s future lies.

VA Can Provide the Company and Its Directors
the Following Benefits:

Most of the Creditors are precluded from pursuing their debt including the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and the landlord.

On the personal front, creditors who hold a director’s personal guarantee cannot enforce it without Court approval.

It is possible for the Company to continue to trade during the administration period.


When to use Voluntary Administration?

  • The Company is insolvent, however you believe it still has a viable business worth saving, a comprise may be reached with the creditors to save the Company.
  • The Landlord has issued an ultimatum to lock up the Company’s premises with all its assets inside, placing the Company into Voluntary Administration will stop the Landlord from any further action, allowing time to save or sell the Business as a going concern or sell off its assets.
  • The Creditor has gone as far as issuing the Company with a Statutory Demand and commenced Winding Up proceedings in the Court. Rather than dealing with the Liquidator that appointed by the Court, you wish to appoint an Administrator you are more comfortable with.

What happens at the end of the Voluntary Administration period?


Voluntary Administration usually lasts from 25 to 30 days, at the second meeting (major meeting), the Creditors will usually decide on one of the following courses of action that the Company should take:


  1. That the administration ceases, returning control of the Company to the Directors if the Company is found viable and a Voluntary Administration is unnecessary;
  2. That the Company is wound up and put into Liquidation;
  3. That the Company enters into a Deed of Company Arrangement; and
  4.  That the meeting be adjourned to a later date.
