UPDATE – As predicted in our videos, on 24 September 2020 the government effectively extended the restrictions on statutory demands and winding up petitions from 30 September to 31 December 2020. In simple terms, statutory demands served between 1 March 2020 and 31 December 2020 cannot be relied upon to support a winding up petition produced to the court (unless presented before 28 April 2020), and between 27 April 2020 and 31 December 2020, a creditor cannot present a winding up petition without reasonable grounds for believing that the debtor would be deemed insolvent regardless of Covid-19. Validation orders also need not be sought during the period ended 31 December 2020.
