On 6th August 2019 the ISI provided the Department of Justice and Equality with a submission on the reform of Insolvency Law in Ireland – Personal Insolvency Act 2012 (as amended) and Bankruptcy Act 1988 (as amended). This submission consolidates all of the submissions made by the ISI to date. The proposed changes, when enacted, will significantly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of both Acts, reduce Court involvement in the processes, save significant time, effort and costs of all involved, and provide for improved debtor engagement with the formal processes and resolution of personal debt issues.
