Setting Aside a Statutory Demand

In order to set aside a statutory demand, a debtor must file an application at Court in order to apply for Setting Aside a Statutory Demand.  That form is a form 6.4 and whilst relatively straightforward, care needs to be taken to ensure the Setting Aside a Statutory Demand is properly completed and supported evidence properly set out. Failure to do so can materially damage the prospects of a Debtor to set aside a Statutory Demand.

The initial Application will go before a Judge to see whether it merits having a Hearing. A badly completed Setting Aside a Statutory Demand Application will mean that it won’t even get past the first hurdle. If it does, then the matter will be listed for a hearing.

At the Setting Aside a Statutory Demand Hearing, the Judge will review the witness statement evidence relating to the claim and make a decision as to whether Setting aside a Statutory Demand is appropriate. If a Debtor can show that the debt is subject to a genuine and substantial dispute then court will order setting aside the statutory demand. If the Debtor shows that there is a valid cross claim which extinguishes the amount of the Creditor’s claim, then the Statutory Demand will be set aside.
