Bankruptcy in the UK comes in different forms. The most common one is known as the individual voluntary arrangement. This is basically an agreement between a debtor and their creditors in which the debtor is allowed to pay back individually what they may be able to and the creditors repay what they can so that neither becomes indebted to the other. The procedure for an IVA is generally one governed by the Bankruptcy (Application) Act; and it is expected that about 9,000 people will be declared insolvent every year.
So what does it mean when a debtor is said to be “irre Restore”? In the UK, an individual who is declared insolvent means that their debts have reached such a level that they cannot be repaid. A debtor can be declared to be “irre Restore” for a number of reasons. Foremost among them is when a fixed amount of money is agreed to as the commission for a liquidation, and a substantial amount of the company’s assets of many varieties are put up for sale, with no future hope of recovery. In that case, the company will be dissolved and any debts will be paid back.
The insolvency legislation of the UK is fairly clearly defined. It is intended to provide protection to borrowers against their creditors, and it does that in several ways. Not least that is by restricting the power of creditors, and allowing the debtors to have more control over the actions they are able to take to get out of debt – actions that can be expensive and risky for creditors. For example, a company director can be sent to jail if he knowingly approves a company being liquidated so that a creditor gets nothing. Interest charged on money owed, and certain other debts, can be more strictly prohibited. And the company director has no salary, so they cannot pay their creditors, unless they agree.
The official receiver – who is usually the county court judge – is used to be the protector of the debtor, as he (or she) is the entity from which the debts emerge. The insolvency-proceeding unit in the UK is called the insolvency court. There are six parts of it. There are also a number of other smaller courts. Each division has its own rules. recap divisions, which send the cases back to the county court for further proceedings, especially when new chapters have been established. recap departments, which are the heart of the UK legal system, deal with practically all corporate and individuals insolvencies, as well as with re-mortgage and bankruptcy proceedings. Vehicle Trustees and specializing solicitors serve similar functions. There is bankruptcy court, headed by the Official Receiver, and there is the County Court. It is important to note that the County Court deals with mainly business insolvencies, and there are a few who deal solely with Individual voluntary arrangements.
concentrating on business insolvencies, the Court provides protection in several different ways. It can behalf you with matters dealing with your business liquidation, it will oversee your company’s insolvency and pay off your debts if you become insolvent, and it will ensure your assets are not sold off un accorded to you. It will likely also provide you with a board of directors and provide necessary clerical support.
