BPIF responds to Insolvency Service consultation on strengthening the regulatory framework and fee structure for Insolvency Practitioners

02 April 2014

On 21 March the BPIF responded to an Insolvency Service consultation paper on strengthening the regulatory framework and fee structure for Insolvency Practitioners (IPs).

It also stresses that the proposed reforms are essential to restoring public confidence in the handling of insolvencies and in helping to ensure that the profession delivers the best possible outcomes for creditors.
