Revenue Defaulters

When the DSA concludes successfully, the debts that it covers will be fully discharged and the debtor will be solvent again.

The Personal Insolvency Arrangement applies to the agreed settlement and/or restructuring of secured debts up to a total of €3 million (as well as unsecured debts) over a period of 6 years. The cap of €3 million can be increased by agreement with your secured creditors and the limit of 6 years can increase to 7 years in some situations.

Disqualified Directors


While directors may be disqualified by the court on a number of grounds following an Order of Disqualification (failure to comply with the Companies Acts, incompetence/irresponsibility, lack of commercial probity and standards), the vast amount of individuals disqualified from becoming a company director are due to some crime that has nothing to do with running a company but that automatically adds them to the disqualified list because of the nature of the crime (Section 160 of the Companies Acts, 1990 provides that a director may automatically be disqualified if found guilty of any indictable offence).


Restricted directors are usually guilty of some kind of offence directly related to the Companies Act – perhaps misrepresenting something in the company accounts or continuing to trade while insolvent or some other corporate misdemeanour.
