What Is Safe Harbour?

Safe harbour applies when a director, after anticipating that a company is approaching insolvency, develops a plan or set of strategies that are likely to lead to a better outcome. The primary aim of accessing safe harbour laws is to avoid the immediate appointment of a liquidator or administrator.

The safe harbour provisions provide directors with protection from civil liability for insolvent trading. This effectively provides directors with the time required to develop and implement a restructure and turnaround.
