This fifth edition of Business and Corporations Law has been revised in line with changes that have occurred in business and corporations law since the publication of the fourth edition in 2020. During 2020 and 2021, the federal, state and territory governments implemented temporary measures to overcome the discombobulating effect of the pandemic on the economy: for example, by relaxing rules governing the statutory minimum amount owed before debt recovery proceedings could commence and lengthening the period of time allowed for unpaid debts to remain outstanding. Business and Corporations Law 5th edition covers various legal rules, particularly where governments’ temporary measures have become permanently enshrined in business and company law.
