A creditor wishing to recover a debt must1 submit a proof to the trustee2. A creditor who claims for a debt in writing is referred to as proving that debt; and the document by which the creditor makes the claim is referred to as that creditor's proof3.
A proof must be made out by, or under the direction of, the creditor and authenticated by the creditor or a person authorised on the creditor's behalf4.
