Going Bankrupt in Canberra, the Secrets Rich People Know About Going Bankrupt
Going Bankrupt in Australia tends to sneak in the shadows of both the commercial world and our personal lives. It’s the utmost taboo subject. The concern is perception– because in truth bankruptcy is only a tool that we can use to protect ourselves, and rich people know this. Rich people have understood that insolvency is an essential part of being in business, in certain cases things don’t work out like you had intended, that the market has changed and the numbers simply don’t work anymore. If you are operating a small business in Canberra, then focus, because (and not to sound too dramatic) learning more about this may help you to save your business, car, house and family.
With the recent closure and liquidation of Clive Palmer’s nickel mine there has been a community backfire, workers have lost their jobs and an entire area will be impaired by the sudden shut down of the mine. Similarly we have also witnessed the loss of the Dick Smith’s chain of consumer electrics, as you have probably noticed around Canberra– having said that this has been met with far less shock in the community.
Regardless, both have shut down and yet both high profile owners are still rich and worth millions of dollars. So how does that work? How can these people have virtually had a huge business failure, but had this barely affect their personal wealth? It is due to the fact that they know the nuances of Going Bankrupt.

Often this takes the form of a legal trust, if you would like to learn more about this then speak with a professional when starting your Canberra business. However this really has to be done long before you start having issues.
The next thing that you ought to find out about Going Bankrupt from this is that often there will be a time when you will need to step back from the business that is failing and know when to call an end to it. That is what has happened with Clive Palmer and Dick Smith– both have been controling businesses long enough to understand when it is not going to prosper any longer therefore they pull the plug rather than going down with the ship.
