Receivership in Scotland

a licensed insolvency practitioner, who will be known as the Receiver is appointed to recover monies that may be owed by a business to a creditor it may owe money.

When a company has failed to pay monies, it owes which is secured by a legal charge then a receiver, therefore, may be appointed by the charge holder.

The Receiver will be empowered, therefore to sell charged assets, to repay the debt. While the Receiver collects monies due, they, therefore, will handle the management of the company.

Differences in the insolvency process – Scotland to England and Wales?

Pending new Scottish Rules reflect the Insolvency Rules for England and Wales. However, Scotlands legal system remains separate. Indeed differences remain in statutory provisions and rules applicable.

  1. Scotland has no official receiver as does England and Wales. The Official Receiver takes insolvency appointments. Scotland, therefore, has no liquidator of last resort.
  2. No Law of Property Act (LPA) Receivership exists in Scotland – Scotland has Administrative Receivership (Chapter 2 of the Insolvency Act 1986.).
  3. Various methods for approving fees. Scottish insolvencies, do not agree to costs in advance. However, there is a retrospective consent of fees. So they then may seek approval by creditors or the court.
  4. Scotland has no statutory power to disclaim onerous property or contracts in Scottish insolvencies. 
  5. A Scottish Insolvency Practitioner may cause the insolvent company to reject its contractual responsibilities. However, a liquidator is unable to strip the company of a real right in the land by a one-sided disclaimer.

Scotland Liquidation

Should a company be struggling financially and has no hope of recovery, however. A Creditors Voluntary Liquidation (CVL) is therefore used. The licensed insolvency practitioner, as with administration, realizes assets from the company, then uses the raised funds to pay the creditors and then shut the company.
