This is of particular value to professionals in the financial, legal, credit and advice services, sector regulators, debt help charities, local authorities, local government recovery specialists and other social policy makers.

Workshop topics

  • Opening presentation
    Presentation by the Accountant in Bankruptcy and Agency Chief Executive, Richard Dennis

    What’s bugging you? Tell AiB what it can do to make life better for you
    Critical reviews of debt products are set to take place over the coming year which will have a major impact on how advisers and practitioners go about their business. This session will seek to discuss issues, practices and processes that aren’t necessarily part of the legislation, but are nevertheless part and parcel of how we collectively assist our clients. What can we do better? How can we work better together? What changes would you like to see to how we engage with you? Is there any best practice you can share?

  • Building on BADA(S)
    The Bankruptcy and Debt Advice (Scotland) Act has been in place for around three years now. Has it worked? This session will look at the changes made since the Act came into force and what more needs to be done to ensure it is fit for purpose for delivering debt relief and debt management in the 21st century.

  • A new dawn for DAS?
    With changes to the DAS regulations imminent and a new online DAS case management system set to be rolled out in 2019, what can we expect from DAS in the future? Do the changes go far enough? This session will look at the new regulations, allow attendees to see an exclusive first demonstration of the DASH replacement system EDEN and will discuss the potential impact of the proposed UK breathing space initiative on DAS.
