Transitional security interests under the PPSA – 1 day to go before you lose priority

30 January 2014 Topics: Personal Property Securities, Professional advisers

A transitional security interest is an arrangement or transaction that commenced prior to 30 January 2012 and, if it had commenced after 30 January 2012, it would have created a security interest under the PPSA. If you have a transitional security interest, you are, in most cases, temporarily protected until 31 January 2014, even if you have not registered your interest on the Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR).

This transitional protection period ends at midnight tomorrow. Businesses who fail to register their transitional security interests by that date risk losing their assets on a customer’s insolvency.

If you have not already done so, we encourage you to register your security interests on the PPSR.
