The following Restructuring & Insolvency guidance note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
The Insolvency Practitioners Association (IPA) is a recognised professional body (RPB) for the purposes of authorising (licensing) insolvency practitioners (IPs) under the Insolvency Act 1986 (IA 1986). The IPA is the only recognised regulatory body solely involved in insolvency. For more information, refer to the IPA website.
The sixth edition of the Insolvency Practitioners' Handbook 2018 (England and Wales and Scotland) brings together in one useful volume most of the key guidance and codes that IPs (and those studying for insolvency exams) need to have at their fingertips. Some parts of the handbook may also be useful for solicitors in practice, in particular Section 2, 3 and 4 on Statements of Insolvency Practice (SIPs) in England and Wales and Scotland. For more information on SIPs, see our Practice Note: Statements of Insolvency Practice (SIPs)—a quick guide.
The Insolvency Practitioners' Handbook is made up of 7 key sections, each of which we link to and can be accessed in this Practice Note.
