Bankruptcy procedure

Bankruptcy proceedings allow a company to stop operating without finding a successor, but are more complex and time-consuming than voluntary liquidation. In some cases, bankruptcy may result in criminal liability for the company’s managers and shareholders. In view of these risks, parties to bankruptcy proceedings need to engage qualified lawyers.

The party that initiates bankruptcy proceedings usually improves its legal position. After the initiation of the procedure by the debtor, creditors are not entitled to choose a bankruptcy trustee.

Prerequisites for initiating bankruptcy proceedings

  • According to the legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the basis for bankruptcy proceedings based on the application of a debtor company is its sustainable insolvency, i.e. if the debtor's liabilities exceed the value of its property on the date of filing an application with the court and at the beginning of the year in which the application is filed, as well as at the beginning of the year preceding the year of filing the application, if the application is filed by the debtor in the first quarter of the calendar year.
  • Bankruptcy on the basis of a creditor's application requires the existence of an unfulfilled monetary obligation of the debtor to the creditor on the basis of an enforceable judicial act or an executive document on the recovery of money from the debtor or the debtor's recognition of the debt.

On the creditor’s side, the debtor’s bankruptcy procedure is generally as follows:

  • Collection of evidence and preparation of documents;
