Is your business rescue practitioner the right man for the job?

If you want to appoint your own business rescue practitioner, make sure he's eligible before you approach the courts.

Here's a handy checklist you can use before you just appoint anyone as your business rescue practitioner.

Checklist: Five requirements your business rescue practitioner must meet
  • He's a CIPC accredited member in good standing
  • He operates in a legal, accounting or business management profession
  • He isn't subject to a court probation order
  • He isn't disqualified from acting as a director (Companies Act)
  • He or his relations don't have any relationship with the company that would lead a reasonable and informed third party to conclude that these relationships compromise his integrity, impartiality or objectivity.
But what happens if your business practitioner doesn't check all the boxes? Keep reading to find out…



What if your business practitioner doesn't check all the boxes?    
If your business rescue practitioner doesn't meet all these requirements, don't appoint him! Your creditors or the courts will appoint one for you.
