How Virtual Meetings Revolutionise Insolvency Processes

5 minute read

Introduction: In today's fast paced business environment, the dynamics of financial transactions and debt recovery have undergone significant changes. As individuals or entities involved in lending or financial obligations, we often find ourselves in situations where we need to reclaim substantial amounts of money owed to us. In such instances, the traditional route of seeking legal advice from accountants, solicitors, or lawyers may prove time consuming and financially draining. However, the advent of virtual meetings has brought about a transformative shift, particularly in the realm of insolvency practices, offering a streamlined and cost effective alternative. In this extended exploration, we will delve deeper into how virtual meetings can revolutionize insolvency processes, ultimately saving valuable time and money for both creditors and insolvency practitioners (IPs).

The Complexity of Debt Recovery: When faced with outstanding debts, individuals and businesses often grapple with the decision of whether to pursue the owed funds. In cases of significant amounts, the traditional recourse involves consulting professionals such as accountants, solicitors, or lawyers for legal advice and guidance. While seeking assistance from these experts is essential, it often comes with its own set of challenges, including prolonged processes, high costs and complex legal frameworks. In this context, exploring alternative approaches becomes imperative and this is where the concept of virtual meetings emerges as a game changer.

The Evolution of Insolvency Rules: In April 2017, new rules came into effect, reshaping the landscape of insolvency practices in England. These changes have necessitated a revaluation of traditional methods to adapt to the evolving regulatory environment. As part of this shift, insolvency practitioners across the country are embracing innovative solutions to simplify and expedite the debt recovery process. One of the key questions arising from these changes is the choice between utilising "Deemed Consent" and opting for a "Virtual Meeting" in insolvency proceedings.

Understanding "Deemed Consent" and "Virtual Meetings": "Deemed Consent" is a mechanism that allows certain decisions to be considered approved unless objections are raised within a specified timeframe. On the other hand, "Virtual Meetings" leverage digital platforms to conduct meetings remotely, providing participants with the flexibility to join discussions from any location.

The Advantages of Virtual Meetings in Insolvency Processes


  1. Cost Savings: Virtual meetings eliminate the need for physical presence, reducing travel costs and associated expenses. Creditors and IPs can participate in discussions from the comfort of their offices or homes, translating into significant cost savings.

  2. Time Efficiency: Traditional meetings often involve coordinating schedules, travel time, and logistical challenges. Virtual meetings remove these barriers, enabling swift decision making and efficient communication among stakeholders.

  3. Increased Participation: Geographical constraints are no longer a hindrance with virtual meetings. Creditors and IPs from various locations can actively participate, fostering broader engagement and diverse perspectives in insolvency proceedings

  4. Document Accessibility: Digital platforms facilitate seamless sharing of documents and presentations, ensuring that all participants have access to relevant information. This promotes transparency and enhances the overall efficiency of the insolvency process.
