Overdrawn Current Accounts

Overdrawn Current Account in Auckland

Overdrawn current accounts are usually pursued by a liquidator of a company against a shareholder that has usually received money from the company which has not been declared as income or salary to that particular shareholder.

A current account is legally treated as a “loan” to the shareholder and on liquidation if it is overdrawn (meaning the shareholder owes the company) then the liquidator is likely going to demand that it is repaid back to the company. In this instance a shareholder seldom has a defense or excuse to this and the amount must be repaid. Otherwise the liquidator may obtain judgement and enforce the judgment which may result in bankruptcy for the shareholder.
