About the publications refresh

The Insolvency Service has reviewed its guidance publications and will shortly begin the process of replacing the existing Word and PDF documents with new web based content.

We have refreshed our guidance to focus on our customers need to understand the insolvency processes available to them, complete the required tasks to access our services and meet certain requirements.

We will be introducing our new guidance in phases and will shortly be making changes to content for people who have a Debt Relief Order or are thinking about getting one.

You can view the publications we are replacing and the progress we are making in the document Insolvency Service Publications Review: Schedule (PDF, 215KB, 5 pages).
