Should Solvency Tests Give the Same Answer?

By Dr. David Tabak

Solvency is an important issue in many bankruptcy and related matters. Unfortunately for the sake of consistency, there is not a single definition of solvency, nor is there a single test for bankruptcy. This paper addresses two of the primary tests for bankruptcy, discussing when these tests should give the same or potentially different results. A case study is provided based on a bankruptcy case in which the author served as an expert witness.
