Informal Arrangements

An informal arrangement is exactly what the name implies. It operates without reference to the courts but it requires a plan (proposal) that results in a compromise between the company and its creditors. An informal arrangement is covered under Part 14 of the Companies Act 1993.

A compromise is defined as including:

  • Cancelling all or part of the debt of the company; or
  • A moratorium, where creditors agree not to pursue their debts for a specified time;
  • Varying the rights of its creditors or the terms of the debt; or,
  • An arrangement by shareholders to take equity in exchange for their debt
  • An alteration of a company’s constitution that affects the likelihood of the company being able to pay a debt.

Informal arrangements are another tool that can be used to save a company from liquidation or receivership.
