The purpose of the study is to determine the key factors affecting the occurrence of insufficiency of debtors’ property in modern conditions, as well as to formulate the main directions of overcoming them. The methodological basis of the research was the dialectical method of scientific knowledge, general scientific (analysis, synthesis, modeling), and special scientific methods (formal and legal, statistical). The result of the work was the formulation and substantiation of tasks, the setting of which is necessary for further scientific research aimed at increasing the number of satisfied creditors’ claims. In addition, the authors identified the elements of the legislatively enshrined bankruptcy mechanism, which require changes to resolve the indicated problem. In particular, the measures proposed by the authors will make it possible to increase the degree of filling the bankruptcy estate by modernizing the procedure for selling the debtor’s property, stimulating a more active position of the arbitration administrator to challenge the debtor’s transactions, and bringing his controlling persons to subsidiary liability. The novelty of the work lies in the identification of key factors influencing in modern conditions the appearance of signs of insolvency, the quality, and quantity of debtors’ assets, the insufficiency of their bankruptcy estate. Among them, objective economic reasons, imperfection of bankruptcy legislation, dishonesty of key participants in legal relations related to bankruptcy (debtor, bankruptcy administrator, majority creditors), unwillingness to use the institution of bankruptcy rehabilitation mechanisms, and the epidemiological situation are highlighted.
Key words: insolvency (bankruptcy) / satisfaction of creditors / claims / bankruptcy estate / bankruptcy commissioner
