This Practice Note has been archived and is not maintained.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 from 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Rules 1986, SI 1986/1925 (IR 1986) and all statutory instruments amending the IR 1986, SI 1986/1925 (which are all repealed), modernise and simplify the language used, and incorporate changes made in the law. For materials on administrations under the law prior to 6 April 2017, see: Administration—overview.

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 the reader in understanding them.

In addition, the Insolvency (England and Wales) (Amendment) Rules 2017, SI 2017/366 were laid before Parliament on 13 March 2017 and came into force on 6 April 2017. This SI makes a number of minor amends to the IR 2016, SI 2016/1024 and should be reviewed along with the provisions of IR 2016, SI 2016/1024.
