PURSUANT to section 104(1)(d) of the Insolvency Act 1967, His Excellency the Governor-General, acting by and with the advice and consent of the Executive Council, hereby makes the following order.

1 Title and commencement
  • (1) This order may be cited as the Insolvency (Priorities) Order 1988.

    (2) This order shall come into force on the 10th day of October 1988.

2 Priority of payments due to employees
  • The amount of $6,000 is hereby prescribed for the purposes of the proviso to subparagraph (i) of section 104(1)(d) of the Insolvency Act 1967 as the maximum sum to which priority is to be given, in the case of any one claimant, under that subparagraph.

MARIE SHROFF,

Clerk of the Executive Council.

Explanatory note

This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

Section 104(1)(d)(i) of the Insolvency Act 1967 specifies the priority to be given to payment of certain debts owing in respect of employees' wages and other specified matters.

That section currently provides that the total sum to which priority is to be given in respect of those debts shall not, in the case of any one claimant, exceed $1,500.

This order, which comes into force on 10 October 1988, increases that sum to $6,000.

The increased sum will not apply, by reason of section 2(3) of the Insolvency Amendment Act 1978, in respect of any case where a person has been adjudged bankrupt, or there has been an order or election to administer an estate under Part 17 of the Insolvency Act 1967, before 10 October 1988.


Issued under the authority of the Regulations Act 1936.

Date of notification in Gazette: 8 September 1988.
