Statutory declarations and members voluntary liquidations.

Posted: 1st May 2020

Under the current temporary practice direction supporting the insolvency practice direction a statutory declaration in support of a solvent winding up may be sworn using a video link i.e. virtually and the fact that it is sworn using a video link shall not by itself be regarded as causing substantial injustice to invalidate the relevant insolvency proceedings (see paragraph 9 of the temporary practice direction which is in force until 1st October 2020).

Coronavirus Pandemic – updates

Posted: 2nd April 2020

As a result of the Covid 19 pandemic and the subsequent quarantine lock down in the United Kingdom and elsewhere there are important changes to the way that the English Courts are working. The High Court is following its contingency planning and is conducting its hearings mainly by video link on Skype for Business. You do not need special software to engage in a video link hearing as the Clerk of the Court will provide a link to enter the video hearing on Skype for Business if you contact him or her. In the County Court applications are being conducted in the main by way of telephone hearings though it is advisable to check well beforehand which method of hearing i.e. video or telephone is to be adopted for each case. Some Courts have closed temporarily whilst others are open fully or not open to the public but staffed with a Judge and court staff with suitable social distancing measures in place. The default position is that unless it is imperative to have a hearing in person the above two methods will be adopted. Guidance is changing on a daily basis and further information may be found by clicking here.
