Sarbanes–Oxley Act of 2002; Long title An Act To protect investors by improving the accuracy and reliability of corporate disclosures made pursuant to the. An unfair preference (or "voidable preference") is a legal term arising in bankruptcy law where a person or company transfers assets or pays a debt to a creditor shortly before going into bankruptcy, that payment or transfer can be set aside on the application of the liquidator or trustee in bankruptcy as an unfair preference or simply a preference. In most countries, an application to have a transaction set aside as a preference can only be made by the liquidator or trustee in bankruptcy, as the person making the payment must be in bankruptcy, and thus they are not normally liable to lawsuits from other creditors. The effect of a successful application to have a transaction declared as an unfair preference varies. Inevitably, the creditor which received the payment or assets has to return it to the liquidator. In some countries, the assets are treated in the normal way, and may be taken by any secured creditors who have a security interest which catches the assets (characteristically, a floating charge). However, some countries have "ring-fenced" recoveries of unfair preferences so that they are made available to the pool of assets for unsecured creditors. An unfair preference has some of the same characteristics as a fraudulent conveyance, There is not normally any requirement to prove an intention to defraud to recover assets under an unfair preference application. However, similar to fraudulent conveyance applications, unfair preferences are often seen in connection with asset protection schemes that are entered into too late by the putative bankrupt.

Assignments of Accounts Receivable as Preferences in Bankruptcy. I. INTRODUCTION. In connection with the so-called Chandler Act Amendments of 1938 in bankruptcy, the section defining a preference was the subject of sub- stantial change.1 The effect has been to place the law in doubt and con- fusion. The matter is. HER MAJESTY, by and with the advice and consent of the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba, enacts as follows: Definitions 1 In this Act, "conveyance" includes transfer, assignment, delivery over, payment, gift, grant, alienation, bargain, charge, encumbrance, limitation of use or uses of, in, to or out of real property or personal property, by writing or otherwise; (« transfert ») "personal property" includes goods, chattels, effects, bills, bonds, notes and securities, and shares, dividends, premiums and bonuses in any bank, company or corporation, and any interest therein; (« biens personnels ») "real property" includes lands, tenements, hereditaments, and any estate or interest therein. (« biens réels ») When conveyances declared void as against creditors 2 Every conveyance of real property or personal property and every bond, suit, judgment, and execution at any time had or made, or at any time hereafter to be had or made, with intent to defeat, hinder, delay or defraud creditors or others of their just and lawful actions, suits, debts, accounts, damages, penalties, or forfeitures is void as against such persons and their assigns. Saving as to conveyances by tenants in tail 3 Where a conveyance made by a tenant in tail is impeached under section 2, it is nevertheless as valid as against the heirs in tail and all persons entitled in reversion or remainder as if this Act had not been passed. Saving as to conveyances made bona fide and for good consideration 4 Section 2 does not extend to any estate or interest in real property or personal property conveyed upon good consideration and bona fide to any person not having, at the time of the conveyance to him, notice or knowledge of that intent. How far valuable consideration and intent to pass interest to avail 5 Section 2 applies to every conveyance executed with the intent in that section set forth, notwithstanding that it may be executed upon a valuable consideration and with the intention, as between the parties thereto, of actually transferring to, and for the benefit of, the transferee the interest expressed to be thereby transferred, unless it is protected, under section 4, by reason of bona fides and want of notice or knowledge on the part of the purchaser.

The creditor had previously obtained judgment against Peter Anstett (“Anstett”) in January 2011 for $415,000 and later served a notice of garnishment. For a number of years before and after the judgment, Anstett worked as an independent sales agent for Don’s Produce Inc. In May 2011, Anstett and his wife, Patricia Butts (“Butts”) incorporated 1841918 Ontario Inc. (“1841918”) to which Don’s Produce was directed to pay amounts owing to Anstett for his work. Butts was the sole shareholder, director and officer of 1841918.

The Ontario government has created a new Business Law Advisory Council to put forward recommendations to modernize and reform Ontario's corporate and commercial laws to make Ontario a more competitive jurisdiction in which to do business. Among the eleven members of the Advisory Council is Mc Millan's Robert Scavone. Details of Rob's appointment can be found here. Advisory Council members will serve an initial term of up to 18 months and can be re-appointed for up to three years in total. For more information on the Advisory Council, click here. The Advisory Council was established following recommendations made to Ontario's Minister of Government and Consumer Services by the Business Law Agenda Stakeholder Panel, a volunteer panel of expert corporate and commercial lawyers and legal academics, in its June 2015 report (which can be accessed here). Among other things, the panel recommended that a regular formal process be put in place to continuously review and update Ontario's corporate and commercial statutes, using the insights and opinions of legislative experts and produce evidence-based recommendations for a responsive and efficient business law framework. With no pre-determined agenda or priorities, the Advisory Council may choose to consider some or all of the recommendations set out in the panel's report, which include modernizing Ontario's corporate and partnership laws, updating archaic creditor protection legislation and modernizing and harmonizing personal property security law.

The Parliament of Canada has exclusive jurisdiction to regulate matters relating to bankruptcy and insolvency, by virtue of s.91 of the Constitution Act, 1867. It has passed the following statutes as a result: In applying these statutes, provincial law has important consequences. Section 67(1)(b) of the BIA provides that "any property that as against the bankrupt is exempt from execution or seizure under any laws applicable in the province within which the property is situated and within which the bankrupt resides".

This Act may be cited as the Assignments and Preferences Act. R. S. c. 25, s. 1.

(the Ontario provincial legislation which may be applied to set aside transactions made by an insolvent person or a “person in contemplation of insolvency”, with an intent to give an unjust preference to a creditor) and Rule 16.08(16) of the [i] to halt a would-be fraudster from attempting to thwart a previous judgment by using a newly incorporated entity to receive payments that should have went to the plaintiff. The creditor had previously obtained judgment against Peter Anstett (“Anstett”) in January 2011 for $415,000 and later served a notice of garnishment. For a number of years before and after the judgment, Anstett worked as an independent sales agent for Don’s Produce Inc. In May 2011, Anstett and his wife, Patricia Butts (“Butts”) incorporated 1841918 Ontario Inc. (“1841918”) to which Don’s Produce was directed to pay amounts owing to Anstett for his work. Butts was the sole shareholder, director and officer of 1841918. The creditor argued that the incorporation of 1841918 was intended to defeat or defraud the plaintiff and thwart enforcement of the judgment (i.e. money that should have went to the plaintiff, was being paid fraudulently into the new corporation). In his testimony and affidavit evidence, Anstett actually acknowledged his indebtedness to the creditor, but stated further that he was also significantly indebted to his wife and was attempting to pay off that indebtedness in preference to the judgment for the creditor.

CCAA Representation Orders can Benefit a Range of Stakeholders In January 2017, the Quebec Court of Appeal considered the scope of representation orders in CCAA proceedings. The Court of Appeal in heard an application for leave to appeal the order appointing representatives for a group of about 140 unpaid subcontractors. The fees of the representatives and their counsel were to be paid by the debtors and secured by a charge against the debtors’ assets. The petitioners did not dispute the application of the factors for granting a representation order but argued that this group of subcontractors did not meet the test since there was no evidence of vulnerability or limited resources, among other things. The Court of Appeal dismissed the application for leave, observing that vulnerability could not be reduced to impecuniosity and that CCAA representation orders are not limited to “widows and orphans” but can in fact benefit stakeholders in a range of circumstances. The Court further held that it was not inappropriate to consider that subcontractors’ claims are vulnerable on the basis of the cost of individual participation, as opposed to the financial circumstances of each, and that vulnerability is only one of a series of factors to be weighed.
