Liability for insolvent trading as an incorporated association

by Andrew Lind on 19 September, 14

Can committee members be made liable?

Should we incorporate under the Associations Incorporation Act or the Corporations Act?

While incorporation under the Associations Incorporation Act 1981 (Qld) provides some limited liability for the members and committee members, committee members may still be liable for insolvent trading, breaches of fiduciary obligations and operations outside the scope of incorporation. In our experience incorporation under the Associations Incorporation Act is best suited for sporting clubs and other small associations and not large institutions or entities holding valuable assets.
