The Insolvency (England and Wales) Rules 2016—Part 10: Bankruptcy [Archived]

ARCHIVED: This Practice Note has been archived and is not maintained.

The Insolvency (England and Wales) Rules 2016, SI 2016/1024 (IR 2016) were laid before Parliament on 25 October 2016 and came into force on 6 April 2017. They are intended to consolidate the Insolvency Rules 1986, SI 1986/1925 (IR 1986) and all statutory instruments amending the IR 1986, SI 1986/1925 (which are all repealed), modernise and simplify the language used, and incorporate changes made in the law.

The IR 2016, SI 2016/1024, are accompanied by an Explanatory Memorandum (prepared by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy in conjunction with the Insolvency Service) which, although not forming part of the IR 2016, SI 2016/1024, (and not approved by Parliament), may assist in understanding the IR 2016, SI 2016/1024.

Being the single largest change to insolvency law in a generation, we have produced a series of Practice Notes describing most of the individual Parts of the IR 2016, SI 2016/1024, summarising what changes there are, and also where there are no changes other than new rule numbers.

This Practice Note is concerned with IR 2016, SI 2016/1024, Part 10 in relation to bankruptcy, and which largely replaces IR 1986, SI 1986/1925, Part 6. For materials on bankruptcy under the law prior to 6 April 2017, see: Bankruptcy—overview.
