The takeover of the healthy core in receivership or the sale of the business unit are the options allowed by the Slovene Financial Operations, Insolvency Proceedings and Compulsory Winding-up Act (ZFPPIPP). The sense of taking over the healthy core in receivership is in ensuring future existence of the business activity and work positions. When selling the business unit in receivership one has to be familiar with the process of the selling the assets in receivership procedure, as well as with the procedure of selling the company or its assets outside the receivership. It also needs to be taken into account that the rules determined in the ZFPPIPP are mandatory and need to be adhered. The master's thesis presents the steps of the sale of the business unit, legal aspect of this sale, as well as the possibility of future operations of the debtor in bankruptcy in receivership, which is often the indispensable condition for a later successful sale of the business unit.
