Diligence Review 2016

The Accountant in Bankruptcy is currently carrying out a review of the diligence legislation that was introduced by the Bankruptcy and Diligence etc. (Scotland) Act 2007 (“the 2007 Act”).  This review will assess, wherever possible, the impact of the changes made to diligence through this legislation.

A consultation has been launched as part of this review.  This provides you with an opportunity to give your view on the changes that were introduced by the 2007 Act.  The consultation will run from 6 September 2016 to 30 November 2016 and all responses will be considered.  We aim to issue a report on this consultation by the end of March 2017 and this will be posted on our website. 

Please find the consultation paper here.

Responses should be returned to AIB_Policy_Development_Enquiries@gov.scot or to: Carol Kirk, AiB, 1 Pennyburn Road, Kilwinning, Ayrshire, KA13 6SA by 30 November 2016.
