Statutory demands can be an effective tool in chasing bad company debts but are often misused and confused with standard ‘debt collection’.

Gary Dean will provide an essential overview of the law, practice and procedure from both a creditor and debtor perspective on issuing, enforcing and setting aside statutory demands.

Practical tips will be given on

  • when to issue or not to issue a statutory demand
  • the vexed questions of whether there is ‘a genuine dispute’ and whether a debt is ‘due and payable’
  • whether winding up a company is always the most appropriate option for a creditor client
