Debt Recovery - Changing Times

Event Date: 11 February 2014

2013 heralded a number of significant changes to Ireland’s debt recovery regime. The year saw the first debt relief arrangements introduced by the Personal Insolvency Act being confirmed by the courts, as well as an increase to the monetary jurisdiction thresholds in both the District and Circuit Courts. The revision of the Central Bank’s Code of Conduct on Mortgage Arrears and the remedying of the well documented loophole in the law governing property repossessions are developments particularly relevant to secured creditors.

To review how these changes will impact future work practices in debt collection and recovery we hosted a special breakfast briefing on these topics. Economic growth should positively influence collection rates and Economist Jim Power shared his outlook for 2014 and beyond.
