SECTION 545  EXPENSES OF WINDING UP WHERE PROPERTY INSUFFICIENT  

545(1)  [Limitation on liability to incur expenses]

545(2)  [Direction to incur particular expense]  


The Court or ASIC may, on the application of a creditor or a contributory, direct a liquidator to incur a particular expense on condition that the creditor or contributory indemnifies the liquidator in respect of the recovery of the amount expended and, if the Court or ASIC so directs, gives such security to secure the amount of the indemnity as the Court or ASIC thinks reasonable.
