    I am being pursued over a debt incurred by a Pty Ltd company that is in liquidation. The debt is approx $12000.00 and is being pursued under a director's guarantee through QCAT.

    I am located in Western Australia and cannot attend the hearing in Queensland.

    If the applicant is successful, is the QCAT decision enforceable in Western Australia?

    Hi,

    It's my understanding that the QCAT decision can be registered with the sheriff / bailiff and they can enforce the decision in any state so you may be out of luck.
