    I made a purchase of $1,139.81 on the 2nd of July via a transfer from my bank account to theirs.

    The purchase was taking a lot longer to ship than usual so I tried calling them but the phone kept ringing out.

    So I came to these boards to discover the bad news...

    I just got off the phone from my bank, basically they can't do anything in this situation and it looks like I may be out of pocket!

    I'm really stressed and have no idea what to do next!!!

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    Thanks in advance...

    I read the ATO guidelines I do not see anything about 10%. How do we know that ATO claims GST on bullion sold 10% over spot?. And how do they deal with bullion sold with a fixed premium?

    I have a feeling but am not 100% sure, that Perth Bullion was behind the new Englehard bars and that's why they disappeared.

    This will be a good indication of the potential outcomes for those who do not physically hold their gold. I was considering unallocated gold with Bullion Now but will wait to see how this plays out first, even though its likely to take a while.

    Hi, I’m fairly new to the site and stacking in general.

    Unfortunately, having never heard of Perth Bullion until a couple of weeks ago, on 9th July I bought online some silver coins, transferred the money ($1616) the same day, only to now find out they are in liquidation. Couldn’t Have time do it better.

    How can they have traded after 2nd July...???. Not very fair at all.

    Not a very good start for my stacking career.

    Hopefully I will get something back, but am slightly pissed.

    I have moved this thread to General Precious Metal Discussion and sticky-ed it as I feel this topic is important.

    If this is really the case, then expect a price hike (in the name of GST) at other bullion dealers as well. . . . .I suppose!

    Firstly i hope the boys are ok and come out of this somehow. Meet them at a meet up once and have bought off them a few times over the last 5 years. i felt a top notch company. I hope nobody loses a livelyhood out of this.


    It is very frustrating as i'd saved up for a while to make a purchase as they had a coin I wanted and couldn't find anywhere else. Went to pull the trigger and no coins had to view this thread to realise they were in trouble.

    I wonder what WA will be left with in terms of bullion dealers now.

    It seems that the squeeze is on from the top to the bottom,that suggests to me that prices are going higher :)

    Sorry to hear you are going through this. It has been a while since I have looked into this in Australia but going back to basics, if a liquidator is appointed then the Company is already deemed insolvent. It can't trade and it can't take on new creditors. That is not to say that the relevant insolvency legislation can't empower a liquidator to continue doing business if to do so would, in the opinion of the liquidator, ultimately increase the return to the unsecured creditors. But if the liquidator chooses to do this any new creditors taken on by the liquidators rank above the unsecured creditors, which means they are protected. So the liquidator can choose to send you the coins (which would amount to running the business) or return the money. As Oddjob (who is often full of good advice) and others said the most important thing is that you contact the liquidator. Make sure it is in writing. They will be working the mess out and I am sure you will be fine. So your timing definitely COULD have been worse... you could have made the transaction the day before the appointment. Good luck, I think it is just a waiting game.
