The Case Help Manual (The Manual) contains guidance on dealing with
case administration matters and is for the use of Insolvency Service
staff. The guidance is not exhaustive and it may be appropriate in
some circumstances for Insolvency Service staff to deviate from this
You should not rely on this web version of The Manual to contain the most up-to-date guidance on a subject, the definitive version is published internally on our organisational intranet.
The Manual is published on the internet under the Insolvency Service’s Freedom of Information Publication Scheme and is updated periodically. Links to documents outside the manual do not work as they refer to our internal systems.
