Phoenixing happens when an indebted company deliberately transfers assets from that company to a new company, and then puts the first company into administration or liquidation to avoid paying creditors, including employee wages and entitlements.
It then carries on the same business leaving workers out of pocket.
The new company sometimes even re-employees the same workers.
Phoenixing activity is illegal.
