Assessment Of The Debtor’s Property

At present, the Federal Law No. 144-F, dated 28.07.2012, “On Amending Certain Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation,” somewhat changed the rules for assessing the debtor’s property at the stages of external management and bankruptcy proceedings.

In accordance with the new edition of Art. 130 FZ “On Insolvency (Bankruptcy)”, the appraiser’s involvement at the stage of bankruptcy proceedings ceased to be mandatory. As a general rule, the value of the debtor’s property is determined based on the results of the inventory.

The assessment of the debtor’s property with the involvement of an independent appraiser at the expense of the debtor’s property can be made only if within thirty working days (in case of sale of the enterprise under the external management procedure) or within ten days (in case of sale of the debtor’s property within the procedure of bankruptcy proceedings) from the date of inclusion of information on the results of the inventory of the debtor’s property in the Unified Federal Register of Information on Bankruptcy, the arbitration administrator will be required to conduct it from the competitive th creditor or from the authorized body, if the amount of the claims of the bankruptcy creditor or the authorized body exceeds two percent of the total amount of the creditors’ claim.

In the request for an appraisal, it will be necessary to indicate the property in respect of which the assessment is to be made.

Within two months from the date of receipt of such demand, the arbitration manager is obliged to ensure that the property is valued at the expense of the debtor’s property.

In case of insufficiency of the debtor’s money for assessing the property at the request of the bankruptcy creditor or authorized body, the arbitration manager shall notify the person who made the relevant request about it within two working days from the date of receipt. In this case, the assessment of the debtor’s property is carried out if the bankruptcy creditor or the authorized body that has submitted a request for an appraisal of property transfers money to the debtor’s account to pay for the services of the appraiser at the rate of their value. Based on the results of the sale of the debtor’s enterprise (property), the specified monetary funds are refunded to the competitive creditor or authorized body in the order established by clause 2 of Article 134 of the Federal Law “On Insolvency (Bankruptcy)”.
