Brexit impact—cross-border insolvency (Insolvency (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019, SI 2019/146)

As of exit day (31 January 2020) the UK is no longer an EU Member State. However, in accordance with the Withdrawal Agreement, the UK has entered an implementation period, during which it continues to be subject to EU law. References to exit day in many Brexit SIs are to be read as reference to IP completion day (Implementation Period completion day, defined in clause 39 as 31 December 2020 at 11.00 pm) (unless that provision is expressly disapplied by the SI in question). For further details, see News Analysis: Brexit—impact of the Withdrawal Agreement and European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Act 2020 for R&I lawyers and Brexit Bulletin—key updates, research tips and resources.

For cross-border insolvency, the Insolvency (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019, SI 2019/146 have an impact. For further details, see
