Since 25 April 2017, it has been mandatory to use electronic filing (e-filing) in all jurisdictions of the Rolls Building, which includes the Insolvency and Companies List (formerly the Bankruptcy and Companies Courts of the Chancery Division). Since that date, it is no longer possible to issue claims or applications, or to file documents, on paper—instead all issuings and filings must be made online using the CE-File website. For further reading, see News Analysis: E-filing at the Rolls Building: some practical considerations for R&I lawyers. The extension of e-filing to the Business and Property Courts outside of London occurs from 25 February 2019, with the issue of all new proceedings becoming mandatory for professional users from 30 April 2019.
