INSOLVENCY AND VOLUNTARY SEQUESTRATION The term “insolvency” relates to both sequestration (for individuals and trusts) and liquidation (for companies and close corporations). Sequestration can either be effected by voluntary sequestration or compulsory sequestration. This article will deal with voluntary sequestration, where the person applying to the Court for sequestration is the insolvent individual himself/herself.

The purchaser will then pay the purchase price in instalments and the seller will charge interest on the outstanding amount from time to time.
