We look at the reforms to the insolvency law in Shenzhen, China prompted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Written by Catherine Shen, ABLI.
China is looking to enact the personal bankruptcy regime in Shenzhen, one of its largest cities. On 2 June 2020, the Shenzhen Municipality published the draft of China's first ever personal bankruptcy regulations for public consultation. The Personal Bankruptcy Regulations of the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone (Draft for Comments) has a total of 157 articles across 13 chapters, and public consultation ended on 18 June 2020.
To pre-empt the possibility where debtors from all over China come to Shenzhen to evade debts once the regime is in place, the regulations require debtors to have made social contribution in the municipality for three consecutive years, among other conditions, before they can avail themselves of protection. Further, the threshold for creditor-initiated personal bankruptcy filings is set at half a million RMB in debts that have fallen due (individually or collectively) to prevent abuse by creditors with smaller claims.
