We often get asked under what circumstances can a liquidator recover legitimate payments of a creditors invoice. That is, when a creditor provides goods or services and then gets paid, then the liquidator seeks to claw back the payment of the invoice.

Here we answer:

  1. How liquidators can recover payments.
  2. What the liquidator would need to prove in order to be successful.
  3. The defenses to a claim.
  4. What you should do if the debtor company is offering to pay but you are concerned about future liquidator claims.
