Revised Insolvency Practice Direction Published

The revised Insolvency Practice Direction has been published and approved with effect from 4 July.  This replaces the PD published in April this year.  The revisions (primarily dealing with the distribution of specialised insolvency work) widen the scope of work which can be undertaken in local courts, whilst also giving the ability to transfer insolvency cases back to the local hearing centres if there is sufficient expertise to deal with the matter.

The revised PD also clarifies that out of court administration appointments cannot be made outside of court hours using the electronic working pilot scheme and that the rules as to filing outside of court hours in r3.20 to 3.22 of the Insolvency Rules (England and Wales) 2016 apply.
