3. Ensuring your security is secure

An ineffective registration on the Personal Property and Securities Register (PPSR) could mean the loss of your property upon an insolvency event. Ineffective registrations are very common and can often be due to simple errors as the PPS rules are comprehensive and confusing. Find out what you need to know about creating effective registrations on the PPSR and minimising your exposure.
