SECTION 1578  SIMPLIFIED OUTLINE OF THIS DIVISION  

 View history reference

This Division deals with the way this Act will apply to external administrations when the provisions of the Insolvency Practice Schedule (Corporations) begin to operate.

New external administrations

The Insolvency Practice Schedule (Corporations) applies to external administrations that start on or after the commencement of the Insolvency Law Reform Act 2016 (called new external administrations).

Ongoing external administrations

For external administrations that start before that day but are still ongoing (called ongoing external administrations), the Insolvency Practice Schedule (Corporations) applies in accordance with this Division but usually only in relation to new events. Generally, the old Act continues to apply to old events and processes that are incomplete. There are some exceptions.

Old external administrations

For old external administrations that have ended but that may have ongoing obligations or processes, in most cases the old Act continues to apply.

[CCH Note: Regulation Sch 13, item [3] (which was effective 1 March 2017) provides that s 1578 (paragraph relating to new external administrations) is amended as follows:

Omit "the commencement of the Insolvency Law Reform Act 2016 (called new external administrations)", substitute "1 September 2017".
