Temporary Insolvency Practice Direction

This Insolvency Practice Direction is intended to retain those parts of the previous Temporary Practice Direction that were not concerned with workable solutions for court users during the COVID-19 pandemic and which come to an end under SI at the end of September 2021.

Those elements were concerned with permanent changes to the way insolvency business is handled in the courts, and include:

1. the out of hours appointment of administrators,
2. the provisions relating to making statutory decisions remotely, and
3. the time of obtaining a moratorium which need to continue until such time (if at all) as they are addressed by substantive rule changes.

Please read the Temporary Insolvency Practice Direction below.
