Background to the Temporary Insolvency Practice Direction Supporting the Insolvency Practice Direction

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has led to unprecedented social distancing measures and lockdowns. This in turn has had a significant impact on the ability of the courts, and court users, to carry out their normal functions. In response, the courts are operating under new protocols and procedures—see Practice Note: Coronavirus (COVID-19)—Changes to the court process in insolvency proceedings.

To supplement these changes, and in order to deal with specific challenges relevant to insolvency proceedings, a Temporary Insolvency Practice Direction (TIPD) was introduced on 6 April 2020. This expired and was replaced by further versions of TIPD (in the same form), with the most recent version being introduced on 30 June 2021. That version expired on 30 September 2021 and has been replaced by a new temporary insolvency practice direction supporting the insolvency practice direction (MIPD 2021).

For further details on the original TIPD, see Practice Note: The Temporary Insolvency Practice Direction (6 April 2020–1 October 2020) [Archived].

For further details on the Practice Direction on Insolvency Proceedings which the TIPD supports, see Practice Note: Practice Direction on Insolvency Proceedings.

The TIPD is intended to assist court users during the coronavirus pandemic by avoiding the need for parties to attend court in person and to deal
