Abstract

Examines key developments affecting the role of the prescribed part fund for unsecured creditors in UK insolvency proceedings. Reviews data on the fund's use in proceedings between 2012 and 2016, the problems arising from the narrow application of the concept of a company's net property, and the impact of raising the cap on the fund and restoring HMRC's preferential status. Suggests why the fund should either be extensively reformed or abolished.
