The bankrupt’s estate must be distributed in the following order.

Costs and charges properly incurred in administering the estate must be paid in priority to all debts and in the proper sequence.

2. Pre preferential debts:
These are:

  • Proper funeral and testamentary expenses of a deceased insolvent;
  • Premiums paid by apprentices or articled clerks;
  • Property of a friendly society of which the bankrupt is an officer; and
  • Expenses properly incurred by a trustee of a deed of arrangement.

 

3. Preferential debts:
These include:

  • Local rates and amounts deducted as P.A.Y.E by a bankrupt employer from employees' pay accruing due during the twelve months preceding the receiving order;
  • Up to one year's arrears of any other assessed taxes;

 

4. Unsecured debts:
These rank equally after payment of preferential debts in full.

5. Deferred debts:
These include:

  • Accrued interest in excess of 6% per annum, due to an unsecured creditor;(paid in priority to other deferred creditors).
  • Statutory interest at 6% per annum; and
  • Claims arising under a settlement set aside by the trustee.
