September2020 What is involved in the business rescue and liquidation of a company


By the end of this event the participant should:

  • Understand what business rescue is;
  • Understand what liquidation is;
  • Understand business rescue proceedings;
  • Be aware of the rights of affected persons; and 
  • Know how a company is voluntarily or involuntarily wound up.


Corporate entities are juristic persons and they have lifecycles. At some point in time, your business or your clients’ businesses may face death due to operational difficulties or other reasons.

In this webinar we deal with whether to save a dying business (Business Rescue) or put the final nail in its coffin (Liquidation).  We will look at the challenges around business rescue and the overview of the process and where the law stands regarding insolvency.

The Series is designed for the accountant who is just starting out, as well as the practitioner that wants a refresher course on the Companies Act and how it has settled down into the South African corporate landscape.  To attend all 8 webinars join the series HERE.
