With market focus on insolvency – and recovery – this subscription service is particularly useful. As the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Corporations and Financials Services has indicated*, the VA procedure has been a successful innovation which is a central feature of Australian insolvency law. With VA increasingly accepted and used, Crutchfield’s Voluntary Administration is unique in focusing on its specific requirements.

The service combines a detailed annotated version of Part 5.3A of the Corporations Act  2001 with guiding topic-based commentary. Both analysis and annotations are geared to the  range of practice, addressing judicial interpretation and the regulatory requirements of VA.

Building on their highly regarded forerunner text (2003), Colin Anderson and David Morrison here provide analysis which also takes account of the current practice landscape. Major changes incorporated include those effected by case law and the wide-ranging legislative reforms arising from the Corporations Amendment (Insolvency) Act 2007

Publication in quickly updating formats supports responsiveness to ongoing reform. Online delivery also enhances easy access to related content, particularly case law (subject to separate subscription), as well as to included ASIC materials such as relevant Regulatory Guides, Class Orders and Forms.

* Corporations and Markets Advisory Committee (CAMAC), “Rehabilitating large and complex
enterprises in financial difficulties report”, 2004:

The aim of any corporate recovery process is to give financially distressed enterprises that may still be viable in the longer term a realistic opportunity to overcome their financial problems and continue in business. The return of an enterprise to profitability rather than winding it up may benefit a range of affected parties, including financiers, suppliers, employees and shareholders….Voluntary Administration (VA) has emerged as the principal corporate rehabilitation procedure in Australia ….”
