2017 was the year the insolvency world of England and Wales modernised. As we are all well aware the new Insolvency Rules (England and Wales) 2016 went live on 6 April 2017 along with the coming into force of the insolvency parts of the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015.
The new rules have been in use for nearly 6 months now and I thought it would be a good time to take a look back and recap on the new requirements of the new law.
Forms aren’t what they used to be
Final meetings are no more
Opting Out and Websites
Claims under £1,000
Individual’s Privacy in a Statement of Affairs
We haven’t reached the end yet
The team at Visionblue worked tirelessly to ensure all the requirements outlined above were implemented to our case management solution to be utilised by our clients. We are aware that legislation will be out soon which will look to amend some of what came into force on 6 April 2017. As the phrase goes there is no rest for the wicked, and we will make amendments where required once the details of these legislation tweaks are known.
