Personal insolvency – and the Debt Arrangement Scheme
Tuesday 13th April 2021

An on-line training workshop over two mornings - Tuesday 13th and Thursday 15th April 2021

Given the COVID-19 health emergency, it has not proved possible to run our usual training events in Grangemouth. In response to demand from delegates, we are running a series of Spring 2021 training events on-line through the highly successful GoToWebinar and Microsoft Teams platforms. This will allows for a full training day but spread over two mornings and will allow for full audience interaction and Q&A sessions in addition to a full training presentation.

Drawing together a range of subjects and scenarios within the context of insolvency and debt management, this course will look at the current issues in the insolvency environment.

Understanding your options means that you are more likely to find solutions, and this course looks at these areas in greater detail and gives you an opportunity to compare and contrast your approach with your fellow professionals.

The course is designed to be participative and to equip you with knowledge you can apply in your day-to-day role. It will be fully up to date for all legislative changes.
