What is bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy is the legal process that declares a person is unable to pay their debts. All financial interests of the person are vested with their trustee in bankruptcy and the person is absolved from having to repay most outstanding debts.

What is Liquidation?

Liquidation refers to the legal process whereby a liquidator is appointed to a company for the purpose of converting its assets into cash, and using those funds to repay, as much as possible, the company’s debts. In addition to liquidation, a company may also obtain relief through other insolvency processes such as administration or receivership.
