A statutory demand (also known as a 'stat d' or 'stat demand') is a formal request for payment of an overdue debt within 18 days.
Failure to respond to a statutory demand could result in bankruptcy for an individual or compulsory liquidation for an insolvent company.
Anyone can make a statutory demand against a company or an individual.
A formal demand is a written request for payment that:
- Confirms the amount owed and the circumstances of the debt
- Threatens the presentation of a winding-up petition if payment isn't made within 21 days (three weeks)
You do not have to serve a statutory demand before presenting a winding-up petition.
However, serving a statutory demand will strengthen your case and make it easier to commence formal insolvency proceedings against your debtor.
