(b)  the community of whose land the body corporate is the trustee has suspended its operations or religious duties, or both, for a continuous period of not less than 12 months (whether before or after the commencement of this section) immediately before the order is made, or
(c)  the body corporate is unable to meet its liabilities, or
(d)  the Court is otherwise of the opinion that it is just and equitable that the body corporate be wound up.
(2)  An application to the Court for the winding up of a body corporate may be made by:

(a)  the applied provisions have effect subject to the provisions of sections 20 and 21 of this Act,
(b)  a reference in the applied provisions to a company, Part 5.1 body or Part 5.7 body is taken to include a reference to a body corporate,
(c)  a past or present member of a body corporate is not liable to pay the body corporate’s liabilities on the winding up or the costs, charges or expenses of the winding up despite anything to the contrary in the applied provisions,
(d)  the distribution of surplus property after a body corporate is wound up is to be dealt with in accordance with section 23 despite anything to the contrary in the applied provisions,
(e)  such other modifications (within the meaning of Part 3 of the Corporations (Ancillary Provisions) Act 2001) as may be prescribed by the regulations.
(2)  The regulations may provide for the Australian Securities and Investments Commission to exercise a function under any provision of the Corporations Act 2001 of the Commonwealth that is the subject of the declaration under subsection (1), but only if:
(a)  the Australian Securities and Investments Commission is to exercise that function pursuant to an agreement of the kind referred to in section 11 (8) or (9A) (b) of the Australian Securities and Investments Commission Act 2001 of the Commonwealth, and
(b)  the Australian Securities and Investments Commission is authorised to exercise that function under section 11 of the Australian Securities and Investments Commission Act 2001 of the Commonwealth.
(3)  Section 17 of the Corporations (Ancillary Provisions) Act 2001 has effect in relation to a regulation under subsection (2) as if subsection (1) had expressly made provision for the Australian Securities and Investments Commission to exercise the functions concerned.
ss 20–27: Ins 2001 No 11, Sch 1 [10] (am 2001 No 34, Sch 4.56 [1]–[4]).
23   Distribution of surplus property
(1)  Despite the provisions of any other Act or law, if there is property of a former body corporate after the body corporate is wound up, the liquidator must transfer the property to another body corporate created by this Act, or under the Roman Catholic Church Trust Property Act 1936, specified in writing by the Bishop of the relevant Diocese of the wound up body corporate.
(2)  The Bishop of the relevant Diocese must inform the Attorney General of that transfer.
(3)  The transfer of property under this section does not affect any trust on which the assets were held immediately before the distribution, and any such trust continues.
(4)  To the extent to which it is possible or expedient, a person or body to whom property was transferred under this section must, if the property concerned was transferred or given on trust for any purpose, hold that property as nearly as may be possible for that purpose.
Editorial note—

(b)  are payable to, or recoverable by, the body corporate or any person on behalf of the body corporate,
by or under an instrument that takes effect on or after the date on which the body corporate is wound up, a reference in the instrument to the body corporate is to be treated as a reference to the Bishop of the relevant Diocese.

(b)  to exercise all or any of the powers that the Court might exercise if the body corporate were being wound up by the Court.
