RG 16 External administrators - Reporting and lodging

Important notice
Changes to how registered liquidators lodge forms with ASIC


RG 16 is currently being updated to reflect changes to how statutory reports about alleged misconduct by external administrators and receivers or managing controllers are lodged with ASIC.

Effective 30 March 2020, registered liquidators must lodge statutory reports prepared under sections 422, 438D and 533 of the Corporations Act 2001 through the ASIC Regulatory Portal.

There are also new forms or ‘transactions’ on the Regulatory Portal enabling registered liquidators to request ASIC’s assistance in an external administration to obtain company books and records, and to provide notice that they do not intend to supply a supplementary report.

The Regulatory Portal has replaced the previous lodgement channels, including the Liquidator Portal. For more information about these changes, see About each transaction and how they work in the portal.
