Bankruptcy consolidation Bill

Scottish laws on insolvency have been brought together into one piece of legislation for the first time in a generation with the passing of the new Bankruptcy (Scotland) Bill 2016 by the Scottish Parliament.

The Bill captures all of the amendments made to the primary legislation governing bankruptcy in Scotland - the Bankruptcy (Scotland) Act 1985 - as well as new laws brought in since, including the Bankruptcy and Debt Advice (Scotland) Act 2014, which came into force in April 2015.

The Bankruptcy (Scotland) Bill is only the second ever piece of primary consolidation legislation to pass through the Scottish Parliament, following the Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries Consolidation Act 2003.

The Bill is expected to come into force towards the end of 2016, together with updated accompanying subordinate legislation, subject to receiving Royal Assent.
