Business rescue as a turnaround for restructuring after the impact of Covid-19.


By the end of this event members will:

  • Understand what Business rescue is and how it differentiates from Liquidation,
  • Be able to advise their clients in regard to the utilisation of business rescue as a tool to survive financial difficult times,
  • Understand what they need to do to become a business rescue practitioner and a guideline regarding the fees,
  • Understand the possibilities of different types of financial investigations and work that can be done  on behalf of business rescue practitioners,
  • Obtain settlements with SARS within the parameters of a business rescue process,
  • Obtain compromise with creditors of clients,
  • Be able to decide if you should obtain a SAIBA Business Rescue License.


Business rescue provides an alternative option for saving a company teetering on the brink of insolvency, that of a fresh start, and needs to be considered by all those involved with the failing entity.

How it effects your Practice:
The Companies Act no 71 of 2008 allows accountants to become Business Rescue Practitioners, opening up a new revenue stream for your business.

How it effects a Business Accountant in commerce:
Having knowledge of the new restructuring dispensation is essential as most companies may be exposed to business rescue at various levels due to the economy being placed under pressure by the Covid 19 pandemic.

George Nell a senior business rescue practitioner who has taken appointments in more than 120 projects will address members on business rescue proceedings in general, and the pros and cons of business rescue.
