he PPSR (Personal Property Securities Register) commenced in January 2012. Owners of personal property (this is any property other than land, building or fixtures) are able to register a charge over their property for a maximum of 7 year.
If you registered a 7 year charge on your personal property at the start of the register in January 2012 your charge will expire in January 2019. There are approximately 120,000 registrations that will require action prior to January 2019 to ensure they remain active.
We recommend that you check the expiry dates of your registered security interests. The PPSR have a free search tool available for you to check the expiry date of your registered interests:
It is also important that you review your overall asset protection strategy with your commercial lawyer to ensure that all of your assets are appropriately protected.
We recommend that you speak with your commercial lawyer to seek further advice about your PPSR registrations and the overall protection of your assets.
