Corporate Insolvency: Administration
Mar 25th, 2007 at 2:27pm
 
I have been informed that the present Government is promoting administration rather than receivership or administration, has anyone any authority for this?

Thanks for that Norse Mann  Smiley

I'm a bit curious as to why the Government made that move? What are the aims of the Government in preventing holders of floating charges appointing administrative receivers? And why does the Government promote administration rather than receivership or liquidation? I have googled all sorts of phrases and also had a look on the Scottish Exec website, but can't seem to find anything?  Undecided

a small caveat; I have not studied ANY company law for a few years, but i dimly remember that the idea was that Administration is designed to try and keep the company running this being better for the economy, workforce, society in general rather than receviership which just led to the company falling and swelling the ranks of the good folks who just dont't want to work.

I am not sure but receivership may have been prejudicial to creditos other than the floating charge holder.

try this guidance notes to the act http://www.opsi.gov.uk/acts/en2002/02en40-k.htm

and the precceding white paper http://www.insolvency.gov.uk/cwp/cm5234.pdf

p.s you might also want to look at Hansard for the debates precceding the act, but this can be very dull and tedious.
