Application notice in insolvency proceedings (corporate)
The Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015 (SBEEA 2015) allows administrators to bring fraudulent and wrongful trading claims—previously, only liquidators could bring such claims. This change came into force on 1 October 2015, and transitional provisions mean that administrators can only bring fraudulent and wrongful trading claims where the conduct giving rise to the claim occurred on or after 1 October 2015.
This Precedent is drafted from the perspective of a liquidator bringing a fraudulent trading claim under IA 1986, s 213.
