Project Description

This project aims to suggest reforms to deal with fraudulent phoenix activity, where the corporate form is
abused so that a business can avoid its paying debts. The proposed recommendations to Government will
help collection of taxation and assist employees and other unsecured creditors who are the victims of this
destructive behaviour.
