Statutory Demand

Getting you what’s owed.

by Dawsons Lawyers


One of the biggest frustrations in doing business is not getting paid what you’re owed. A statutory demand is a legal document demanding payment from a company who owes you money over $1,000. If the company then fails to pay you within 15 working days of the date of demand, you can apply to the court to place the company into liquidation.

You will need to know:

  • The details of the company which owes the money
  • How much is owed
  • A due date for payment, or for entering an acceptable compromise

Interview time

The interview should take you roughly 8 minutes.
