Written 15th March 2016 - By Charles Bosse-- If checking this out considerably after this date, please check out some of our other blog posts to establish the information is still up to date. Do you know just how much Bankruptcy in Emerald is going to be changing? The Australian Government by the end of 2015 came up with some extreme propositions and possible alterations to the Bankruptcy Laws in Australia, specifically when it relates to the duration of bankruptcy. At the moment, there is a minimum amount of time that you need to remain bankrupt, having said that, this 3 year period may very well be lowered to just 12 months. So if you are looking at going bankrupt, these changes are going to be quite critical to you! How did this all happen? Well, Mark Carnegie (an expert in this field) commented back in December 2015 in the Financial Review that there was going to be recommendations for "the proposed changes to ease the burden of bankruptcy laws didn't go far enough and the government should adopt US-style laws to protect the family home". What complication is he attempting to resolve? Currently, the laws don't have sufficient protections, to the level that Mr Carnegie, continued to say in the Financial Review that offering protection to family assets was needed because "banks just terrorise small business and the mental health consequences to society are enormous". The issue is Australia's bankruptcy laws deterred investors from assisting start-ups, and therefore mentoring had been "driven out of the system" and lots of individuals are too troubled to try and invest or try to run a small business. "They naturally find it very intimidating themselves personally and with their assets at risk in a risky early-stage deal, but with their own money in the deal and a lightened-up provision I think we'd probably see more willingness. It could be more important than the money". This suggests that currently, the current legislations are costing the overall economy and they may benefit you, however they can be exploited and occasionally the innocent fall within the voids and get unjustly punished. Just what is being proposed? The proposition is to have the 3 year bankruptcy duration reduced to just 12 months when there is zero indication of fraud or dishonest practices. These developments will mean a lot for Bankruptcy and will likely take at the very least 18 months to execute. What is Fraudulent Behaviour? Fraudulent behaviour is effectively a phrase that addresses all of the negative things. So when it involves Bankruptcy, this means that it will address acting dishonestly, concealing assets, taking careless risks, behaving unethically or just generally trying to scam people. One proposed recommendation is that while they are minimizing the time for those individuals behaving honestly, they could in fact carry out a counter proposal to target those acting significantly dishonestly and maximize the time. There are currently some provisions in position for whenever you do not comply with certain regulations (and I encourage you to read more about Bankruptcy to make sure you don't inadvertently break these guidelines) but it will be interesting to see exactly how this evolves. So is this a Win for Small Business? Yes, most definitely! This is going to be great for business and I hope that you are reading these changes to Bankruptcy and are getting as thrilled as I am. These recommended modifications will be good for businesses because it can urge additional individuals to get engaged and take estimated risks-- There will nonetheless be consequences in effect, but it won't be unfairly punishing individuals who make genuinely honest mistakes. Many small business owners I assist with Bankruptcy, are hardworking, tax paying, businesses that are helping keep this nation going and so I am delighted to see what will be occurring next with this, and how it will affect Bankruptcy. Bankruptcy helps save lives, and it can save yours.
