Temporary Relief for Financially Distressed Businesses

  • This measure seeks to lessen the threat of actions that could unnecessarily push businesses into insolvency and force the winding up of the business.
  • The Government is temporarily increasing the threshold at which creditors can issue a statutory demand on a company and the time companies have to respond to statutory demands they receive.
  • The package also includes temporary relief for directors from any personal liability for trading while insolvent.
  • This relief will be applicable for six months.
