  • J.V. Chorna Institute of Economic and Legal Researches of the NAS of Ukraine, Kyiv


We studied the insolvency laws of countries such as Canada, Britain, France, Italy and Japan in terms of its versatility and flexibility, as an indicator of an efficient system of bankruptcy. It was established that the legislation of those countries formed of different mechanisms of initiation of the proceedings and the use of reorganization procedures, depending on the value of the debtor and its place in the economy. It was determined that in Ukraine size of indisputable monetary claims should be based on the classification of business entities under Art. 55 of the Commercial Code of Ukraine.
