Dear IP is updated quarterly and issued by the Insolvency Service to insolvency practitioners and other interested stakeholders

Dear IP contains technical updates and revisions to legislation together with updates from policy and other departments within the Insolvency Service. Dear IP also contains guidance to insolvency practitioners.

The guidance in Dear IP is issued on the basis of the legislation in force at the time of publication. Care should be taken when interpreting references to insolvency legislation in older articles where that legislation may have subsequently been amended, particularly following substantive changes made to the insolvency secondary legislation in April 2010.
