Hot on the heels of the recently announced Trust and Transparency Consultation announced by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), comes another consultation, from the Insolvency Service, called Red Tape Challenge—changes to insolvency law to reduce unnecessary regulation and simplify procedures.
The aim is to consult with insolvency professionals on how insolvency processes can be improved, cutting out unnecessary red tape while retaining a suitable protection for creditors.
Potential measures set out in the paper deal with processes undertaken by insolvency practitioners such as the keeping of records and sanction requirements among others. The hope is to reduce the amount of red tape (and therefore ultimately costs) that insolvency practitioners have to currently go through.
The measures include:
The consultation runs for 12 weeks from 18 July 2013. Inevitably any measures that are agreed upon will involve a change to legislation
