Appeal against decision on proof

This section has no associated Explanatory Memorandum

48.—(1) If a creditor is dissatisfied with the postal administrator’s decision with respect to their proof (including any decision on the question of preference), the creditor may apply to the court for the decision to be reversed or varied. The application must be made within 21 days of the creditor receiving the statement sent under Rule 47(2).

(2) A member or any other creditor may, if dissatisfied with the postal administrator’s decision admitting or rejecting the whole or any part of a proof, make such an application within 21 days of becoming aware of the postal administrator’s decision.

(3) Where application is made to the court under this Rule, the court shall fix a venue for the application to be heard, notice of which shall be sent by the applicant to the creditor who lodged the proof in question (if it is not themselves) and the postal administrator.

(4) The postal administrator shall, on receipt of the notice, file with the court the relevant proof, together (if appropriate) with a copy of the statement sent under Rule 47(2).

(5) Where the application is made by a member, the court must not disallow the proof (in whole or in part) unless the member shows that there is (or would be but for the amount claimed in the proof), or that it is likely that there will be (or would be but for the amount claimed in the proof), a surplus of assets to which the company would be entitled.

(6) After the application has been heard and determined, the proof shall, unless it has been wholly disallowed, be returned by the court to the postal administrator.

(7) The postal administrator is not personally liable for costs incurred by any person in respect of an application under this Rule unless the court otherwise orders.
