Illegal phoenix activity is where a new company is created to continue the business of an existing company that has been deliberately liquidated to avoid paying outstanding debts, including taxes, creditors and employee entitlements.
This illegal activity impacts the business community, employees, contractors and the wider community, including unpaid entitlements to employees and non-payment to suppliers.
