In situations of strong headwinds, Vantage Performance is there to help and provide you with a Safe Harbour to provide time and resources to turn around your company and to get it back on track.
What is Safe Harbour?
In September 2017, Federal Government introduced legislative reform, providing protection from insolvent trading to company directors who pursue their turnaround efforts under the umbrella of “safe harbour”.
The safe harbour is a turnaround tool, its purpose being to encourage entrepreneurship and provide breathing space and peace of mind to directors who are focused on improving the company’s financial position in times of financial distress.
The legislation expressly encourages directors to engage a business turnaround expert. The role of the expert is to assist the company to develop and implement appropriate turnaround initiatives. The expert will give directors greater confidence in their plans, and assist directors with financial forecasting to bring greater visibility and certainty around the likely outcome.
Vantage Performance is a leading expert in this field. Provided below are some useful links to more information about how the safe harbour process works.
