The Italian government, with Legislative Decree No. 14 on January 12 2019, approved the new Code of Business Crisis and Insolvency (the Code).
The novelties of this Decree are the tools and mechanisms included for warning and preventing the crisis. In this way, the Legislator has tried to comply with the guidelines expressed by the European Commission on a new approach to manage business failures and insolvency (2014/135/EU).
According to Article 13 of the Code, any income, equity or financial imbalances, in relation to the specific characteristics of the company and the entrepreneurial activity carried out by the company, are identified as “crisis indicators”, taking into account the date of incorporation and the start of the activity.
