Where can I get information on bankruptcy laws?


Bankruptcy laws are actually just one part of a much broader set of legislation governing all forms of Insolvency in the UK. The Insolvency Act 1986 governs both corporate and personal insolvency, covering, amongst other things, IVAs, Debt Relief Orders and Bankruptcy.

More information about Bankruptcy laws can be found in the Insolvency Act 1986, which is available here.
