Prior to liquidation, Mr Cooper, DHL’s sole director, expected there to be a shortfall whether he continued to trade or not but decided to continue trading for a short period to reduce the company’s liabilities in order to pay off secured debts, but accruing GST obligations as a consequence. The High Court found that in doing this, Mr Cooper had breached his duties under ss 131, 135 and 136 of the Companies Act 1991 and made a number of orders in favour of DHL. Mr Cooper successfully appealed the High Court’s decision, with the Court of Appeal finding that Mr Cooper’s decision to continue trading was for the benefit of all the creditors, despite incurring a greater GST debt obligation .
