The new ASIC website to be used by liquidators and other insolvency practitioners, and which can be searched by the public free of charge, is located at https://insolvencynotices.asic.gov.au/
The name of the site is a little misleading, because not all the notices are about insolvent companies. Notices to do with solvent companies who have entered a members’ voluntary liquidation are also shown. Accordingly, caution needs to be shown when browsing or searching. For example, regardless of whether a company is undergoing a solvent liquidation or an insolvent liquidation, the Browse/Search Notices page of the website shows the Status of such companies as simply “In liquidation”. Even when a notice is Viewed, there is no obvious sign as to the type of liquidation the company is undergoing.
When browsing or searching the results can be filtered by Appointment Type. The types are Court Liquidation, Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidation, Deed of Company Arrangement, Deregistration, Members’ Voluntary Liquidation, Scheme of Arrangement, Voluntary Administration and Winding Up Application.
