What Impact Will Bankruptcy Have on my Business?
The effect on your business could be substantial or only a minor concern depending on your circumstances. In Australia while you are bankrupt, you can operate or run a business as a Sole Trader although there are some conditions. There are a few things to consider prior to taking this path, like some professional licences that may well become invalid during bankruptcy. For example, a builder could have their Builder’s Licence suspended for the 3 years they are bankrupt, as this licence is critical for a builder to have, the impact of losing it is huge.
