Creditors’ committees and meetings

A creditors’ committee is a group of not less than three and not more than five creditors whose purpose is to represent the interests of the main body of creditors to assist the insolvency office holder in fulfilling his or her duties.

A committee is particularly useful in large complex insolvencies where, for example, there can be many key decisions that an insolvency practitioner has to make which may involve spending money that would otherwise be available to pay a dividend to unsecured creditors.

The committee also approves how the office holder is to be paid out of the assets of an insolvent estate. 

R3 has issued a guide on creditors’ committees which can be downloaded here and there are two relevant Statements of Insolvency Practice (“SIPs”) – (click on the links below to download):
