Fee Approval and Pitfalls (Scotland)

Regulatory and judicial attention is never far away from the topic of insolvency practitioners' fees. In Scotland we rarely work with a committee or a commissioner, and invariably a Court Reporter or the Accountant in Bankruptcy is appointed to approve our fees and expenses. This can still present a time-consuming and expensive challenge, so how do we get it right?


In this course we will look at the legal and legislative provision, the guidance provided by the courts and the regulators and how these can be put into practice to obtain a valid approval. We will also consider the implications of failing to do so.

CPD Learning Outcomes

  • Recap and refresh your understanding of the legal and regulatory requirements in personal and corporate insolvency
