An overview of the new Scottish corporate insolvency rules and the changes effective from 6 April 2019.

In this webinar, Eileen Maclean, director of Insolvency Support Services, examines the changes introduced to Scottish corporate insolvency with effect from 6 April 2019. Changes to the Insolvency Act 1986, that were made in 2017 in respect of England and Wales, have now been fully enacted for Scotland, and two sets of Rules introduced in support. Find out why there are two sets, and how they are structured, in this webinar. Eileen will also look at procedural changes to Scottish corporate appointments including: the nomination process in court liquidation; section 204 dissolution; changes to the accounting period process; progress and final reports; application of the new Rules to MVLs; statutory interest rate and calculation date; change of date for the calculation of claims; and the various possible “start” dates for reports and accounting periods.

This webinar would suit anyone looking for information and an overview on the new Scottish Insolvency Rules. However it would particularly suit E&W IPs and their staff who deal with Scottish cases.
