Companies facing financial difficulties is nothing new. Some companies manage to turn their financial position around and pull through, whilst others unfortunately do not succeed. The Covid-19 pandemic has emphasized the importance of business rescue and restructuring, as there has been an enormous increase in the number of businesses in financial distress.

Course Content

In this webinar, we unpack and explore the following key questions and issues:

  • What provisions of the Companies Act are applicable to businesses in business rescue?
  • What is a business rescue plan?
  • How should one deal with the tax consequences arising from a business rescue plan?
  • How should one deal with SARS as a creditor when a business is in distress?
  • What steps can be taken to improve solvency and liquidity?
  • What actions can be taken by a company to put it back on the road of profitability?
  • What are the consequences for the debtor and creditor when debt is restructured?

The webinar will also explore practical, real-life case studies of business rescue plans of Edcon, SAA and Comair.
