What Impact Will Bankruptcy Have on my Business?
The impact on your business could be substantial or only a minor issue depending on your circumstances. In Queensland while you are bankrupt, you can operate or run a business as a Sole Trader although there are some conditions. There are a few things to consider before taking this route, like some professional licences that may well become invalid during bankruptcy. For example, a building contractor might have their Builder’s Licence suspended for the 3 years they are bankrupt, as this licence is essential for a builder to have, the significance of losing it is enormous.
