Directors must devise a course of action that, at the time, is reasonably likely to lead to a better outcome than an immediate external administration. This plan should be viable within a reasonable timeframe.

2. Financial Obligations:

To qualify for Safe Harbour, directors must ensure that employee entitlements, including superannuation, are paid on time. Additionally, the company must be current with its tax reporting obligations.
