Insolvency Law Update - Summer 2015

Insolvency and business rescue is still very much in the headlines and never before has there been a time with so much proposed change in the worlds of both personal and corporate insolvency.

Just before Parliament was dissolved, two pieces of legislation (the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015 and the Deregulation Act 2015) were enacted which have significant impact on insolvency law.

Furthermore, we have had the recent announcement concerning the increase in the minimum debt bankruptcy level, and the issue of insolvency practitioners' fees remains a live one. Also, a completely new set of Insolvency Rules is promised in 2016.

This half-hour video provides an overview of these areas of change and gives pointers to assist in your practice.

Topics include:

  • The Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015 - what it means for the insolvency profession
  • Administration - the pre-pack debate continues and more changes are imminent
