Extension of temporary Insolvency Practice Direction that adapts court processes to assist court users during the continuing Covid-19 pandemic

New Direction applies to all insolvency proceedings throughout the Business and Property Courts from 30 June 2021 to 30 September 2021

A new Temporary Insolvency Practice Direction (TIPD) that adapts court processes to assist court users during the continuing Covid-19 pandemic has been signed and approved on behalf of the Lord Chancellor by Lord Wolfson, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Ministry of Justice.

In force from 30 June 2021 to 30 September 2021, the TIPD replaces and extends the previous TIPD issued in March 2021, but makes no change to the procedures that are currently being followed for insolvency proceedings during the Covid outbreak which, the Courts and Tribunals Judiciary says are designed to -

'... assist court users during the continuing Covid-19 pandemic by avoiding the need for parties to attend court in person, and to deal with some of the problems arising from the need for the court(s) to operate with limited staff and resources ...'

NB - the new Practice Direction continues to supplement the Practice Direction - Insolvency Proceedings July 2018 and applies to all insolvency proceedings in the Business and Property Courts subject to variations outside London as directed by the relevant supervising judge.
