You're being mischievous, Sylvia. You knew that would set him off.

A bit, it's true.

Sylvia. You knew that would set him off.

He's actually being a bit cagey. I think he realises he's on shaky
ground, but isn't sure why, and is hoping that I'll reveal all before he
makes an even more embarassing blunder.

Well, looks like Phil has found in himself an exceptional level of self
control, and isn't going to be drawn on this, or perhaps he's figured it
out for himself.

The point is that breaches of the provisions of the Do Not Call Register
Act lead to civil penalties, but are not criminal offences.

http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/cth/consol_act/dncra2006201/s29.html

Therefore anything relating to the liability, or otherwise, of directors
for their own criminal acts, is irrelevant to the discussion.

** There is no law that protects directors from their own criminal acts.

If you think there is one   - cite it.

In the case in question, the woman personally arranged for the illegal calls
to be made.

So she is liable to pay the fine.

---------------------------------------

** Defying the provisions of the DNC Act is illegal and subject to penalty.

The woman director deliberately, recklessly and PERSONALLY did that illegal
thing.

Seems she did not make any provision within the company to pay the penalty.

That her company is now bereft of funds will not save her from personal
liability.

Hence my ORIGINAL comment :

" Betcha she declares personal bankruptcy, then does a runner."

To the extent that the penalties have been imposed on the company, they
are debts owed by the company to the Commonwealth. As a general rule,
directors are not liable for the debts of their company. There are
exceptions, but in each case the exception is identified by law. Unless
there is such a law making debts arising from penalties such an
exception, there will be no liability.

If there is such a law, it should be possible to cite it.

** Wrong.

The money owed is a FINE imposed by the Federal Court for a deliberate,
illegal act carried out by the sole director.

The specified means of collecting the  FINE  is by civil debt proceedings.

If debt proceedings are initiated against the sole director -  she has to
have a defence.

I say she has none.

The court would have imposed the fine to the company.  That's how it works.

Tax debts can be recovered from the directors but this is not a tax debt.
Also, if a company trades while insolvent then the directors can be held
liable for any subsequent debts.   But the case in point is none of these
things.

ACMA media release.

http://www.acma.gov.au/WEB/STANDARD/pc=PC_410053

"Court ordered FHT Travel to pay a civil penalty of $120,000 and granted
injunctions restraining both FHT Travel and Ms Earnshaw from making
certain telemarketing calls."

So it is the company that has to pay the penalty, not the director.
Unless you can cite a law that makes her liable to pay the penalty if
the company cannot, you have nothing.

** Stale news.

The company has apparently ceased trading but has not been wound - it is
about to be struck off.

Debt proceedings cannot be initiated against the sole director if the debts
are owed by the company.  The case would be struck out due to a wrongly
named defendant.

You don't get it.  Directors can only be held liable in certain situations:
eg. tax debt, trading while insolvent.    YOU need to explain why the
director will be liable for the company's fine.

** Complete bollocks.

The ACMA case in the Federal Court was against the company AND it's sole
director.

The Court made orders against BOTH.

** Reckless, illegal behaviour that incurs large debt  IS one of them as is
criminal behaviour.

Particularly when there is only ONE  person, the sole director, responsible.

Note that the " one gal and a dog " company is about to be struck off the
register by ASIC.

Very likely for not filing documents or responding to ASIC.

Registration is about to run out too, in August.

Her obvious defence is that she doesn't owe the money.

She'd probably add that the Commonwealth had not shown the court any
evidence that she owes the money.
