(This note is not part of the Rules)
These Rules substitute new forms in place of those contained in the Schedule to the Insolvent Companies (Reports on Conduct of Directors) Rules 1996. The forms are used for the purpose of complying with rules 3 and 4 of the Insolvent Companies (Reports on Conduct of Directors) Rules 1996 (S.I. 1996/1909). The new forms are substantially the same as the previous forms, but contain minor further requirements for information to be provided by office-holders to the Insolvency Practitioners Compliance Unit of the Insolvency Service. The new forms may be obtained from the Insolvency Service, Insolvency Practitioners Compliance Unit, Ladywood House, 45–46 Stephenson Street, Birmingham B2 4UZ. Those further requirements are in the case of Form D1, to provide the date of any winding up resolutions made by a company and any registered offices of a company within the six months prior to the commencement of the relevant insolvency procedure. They also provide, in the case of both forms, for a change of address to which to send them. Where the insolvency procedure commenced before 2nd April 2001 the office-holder may use either the old forms or the new amended forms until 1st August 2001. After that date such an office-holder must use the new amended forms.
1986 c. 46; amended by the Insolvency Act 2000 (c. 39), in relation to these Rules the relevant amendments are, the substitution of section 6(3) by sections 6(3), 6(3A), 6(3B) and 6(3C). The amendment made to section 21(2) by the Companies Act 1989 (c. 40) is not relevant for the purposes of these Rules.
