Business Rescue and Post-Commencement Funding
Post-commencement finance is capital that is provided to the company once business rescue proceedings have commenced. According to the Act, any remuneration, reimbursement for expenses or other money relating to employment that becomes due and payable by a company to an employee during business rescue, is also considered to be post-commencement finance.
During business rescue proceedings, the company is permitted to approach a financier and utilise an asset of the company to the extent that it is not already encumbered.
Post-commencement financing and structuring is a specialised and technical matter that requires careful legal expertise. Our team is able to advise on the circumstances regarding financing and can also introduce the company to potential post-commencement funders.
