Disclaimer: helpsheets and checklists

This guidance is designed to support the work of ICAEW licensed Insolvency Practitioners and their staff.

Our helpsheets provide support on the preparation of insolvency compliance reviews, on running insolvency practices, as well as technical help. The helpsheets will also help you to comply with the requirements of ICAEW’s insolvency licensing regulations and guidance.

Our personal and corporate insolvency checklists may be useful when you review your formal appointments. They're not an exhaustive statement of the law and best practice but they give staff with insolvency experience the key areas to consider.

ICAEW doesn’t give any guarantee or warranty regarding the accuracy of the checklists or helpsheets none of which should be treated as a substitute or replacement for the user’s own knowledge or legal advice.
