Product description

The Hong Kong Corporate Insolvency Manual started in 2000 as the course material for the corporate insolvency part of the then Hong Kong Society of Accountants’ Diploma in Insolvency course and has since over three editions developed into a leading resource for accounting and legal professionals in Hong Kong working in the field.

The authors have maintained a practical approach, drawing upon illustrations from Hong Kong practice and providing checklists to assist professionals handling the day to day administration of insolvencies.

The Fourth Edition of the Manual is published by LexisNexis in association with the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants*.
