Bankruptcy (Scotland) Act 2016 in practice

Procedural changes were introduced by the Bankruptcy and Debt Advice (Scotland) Act 2014 on 1 April 2015. The Act got its new name and a tidy up on 30 November 2016. So how have these changes bedded in, what is working well, and how can you use the provisions of the Act in practice?
