In June 2021, we reported on The Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020 which came into force bringing about the most significant changes to the UK’s insolvency procedures in nearly 20 years.
As a reminder, The Act contained both short-term measures to relieve the burden on businesses of the Covid-19 pandemic and longer-term permanent reforms to the insolvency regime.
