What Is Voluntary Administration?

A voluntary administration is a formalised type of administration that stands the company in a stationary state. As a result, the voluntary administrator then investigates and reports on the company’s history and financial position to creditors. Hence, the voluntary administrator also makes recommendations about its future. 

Creditors can then decide whether to:

  1. Accept a Deed of Company Arrangement if the directors propose one,
  2. Liquidate the company
  3. Return the company to the control of the directors. 

A Deed of Company Arrangements intention is to save the company so it may continue to operate. The DOCA is a procedure that permits a company to make an arrangement, or compromise of which is binding on all creditors. As a result, if accepted by the creditors, the company may be saved and continue to operate.
