The Bill represents a radical overhaul and modernisation of personal insolvency law in Ireland and introduces a comprehensive and tiered regime aimed at addressing personal insolvency in new ways.

  • The three new concepts of Debt Relief Certificates, Debt Settlement Arrangements and Personal Insolvency Arrangements
  • The operation of protective certificates
  • The impact on security
  • The grounds for challenging proposals
  • The likely judicial attitude to certain key concepts
  • The changes to bankruptcy
  • The likely challenges and opportunities for creditors and debtors
