‘Collapsing by the dozen’: 63 companies go under

QUEENSLAND companies are collapsing by the dozen as the nation's businesses head towards an economic cliff when COVID-19 support ends.

In the final month of the financial year, 63 Queensland companies collapsed into liquidation or administration.

The numbers remain below the average monthly collapses, which hovered around 100 per month prior to COVID-19.

Liquidator Brendan Nixon of SM Solvency said the virus and associated lockdowns had already sealed the fate of many companies.

"Most of our recent liquidations from April onwards have had a cause of the company's demise being attributed, at least partly to COVID-19," he said.

"It's the lockdowns, the travel restrictions and the inability to trade, particularly in hospitality, as usual."

 

 

However, he said the 'insolvency tsunami' predicted for October would not come until June 2021, with lead-up to Christmas this year resulting in high consumer spending.

Government payments are due to run out in September, but pressure is building on the Morrison Government to ease businesses off support.

"It's built an underbelly of zombie companies," Mr Nixon said.

He encouraged small and medium-sized business directors to speak to SM Solvency liquidators if their financial situation was dire.

"There are insolvency professionals such as us who are prepared to work with directors in tough situations," he said.

"Liquidation doesn't have to be expensive."
