Annotated Guide to the New Insolvency Rules

In the single-biggest change to insolvency law in a generation, the Insolvency Rules 1986, SI 1986/1925 (IR 1986) are set to be replaced in their entirety in 2016. In a process which has been ongoing since 2006, the new insolvency rules will not simply be a renumbering exercise—a number of new rules and procedure will take effect which practitioners will need to get to grips with.

The Annotated Guide to the New Insolvency Rules will be updated once the new insolvency rules are passed.
