Section 40 of the Bankruptcy Act 1966 sets out a number of different ways in which a person may commit an act of Bankruptcy. Only after an act of bankruptcy can a creditor petition the court for a sequestration order.

Corporate Insolvency

A company is insolvent if it is unable to pay its creditors as and when they fall due. A director of a company is responsible for it's corporate governance, and is under a duty to prevent insolvent trading. Failure to do so can result in the director being personally and criminally liable. 

Litigation & Commercial Disputes

Litigation is the result of one party exercising their legal rights in a Court of competent jurisdiction. Depending on the type of action the appropriate venue may be a Court, or a specialised tribunal. The monetary size of the claim will also determine the venue, with the Local Court hearing certain civil claims up to $100,000 and District Court $750,000. Finally, the remedy being sought will also have a bearing on the venue, with certain Court's such as the Supreme Court of New South Wales having the necessary power to dispense equitable and declaratory relief.
