What is an insolvency administrator appointed for? 

The liquidator is a person who has a license to own or liquidate and redevelop the property. Such licenses are awarded by the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine. An insolvency administrator is appointed by the Commercial Court for the performance of certain required procedures in insolvency proceedings. The services of a liquidator (liquidator, possessor, and reorganizer) may be performed during certain insolvency proceedings or in liquidation projects without an institution review.

The insolvency administrator plays a key role in insolvency proceedings, as his participation is mandatory under current legislation (Law of Ukraine “On payment recovery of a debtor or recognition of its bankruptcy”).

By law, the insolvency administrator participates in all stages of the insolvency process, from the owner of the estate to the liquidator. Accordingly, a bankruptcy trustee can be considered an indispensable part of today’s insolvency procedure.

Who should be used as a liquidator?

The business court traditionally requires the initiating lender to use a professional insolvency administrator (necessarily with the appropriate license) as the property manager in the preliminary negotiations.

The lenders who have the most votes in the lender’s committee have the right to nominate their candidate for bankruptcy liquidator, who directs the recovery.
