New Insolvency Rules table of destinations published

A table indicating the destination of the provisions in the Insolvency Rules 1986 has been published by the Insolvency Service (IS).

While the Insolvency Rules 2016 broadly derive from the 1986 Rules, there are few exact matches, as the structure of the 2016 Rules is different, the language has been modernised and there have been significant changes.

The new changes come about mainly due to amendments to the primary legislation made by the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013, the Deregulation Act 2015, and the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015.

Introduction of the modernised Rules

The IS said it would continue to support the insolvency profession in preparing for the new rules, and would soon be launching the online facility.

The full Insolvency Rules 1986 Table of Destinations can be found here.
