A Part A1 moratorium is designed to allow financially distressed incorporated entities a short breathing space from enforcement action by certain types of creditors while they organise their affairs to make their rescue viable.

The process was introduced into the Insolvency Act 1986 by the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020 in June 2020.

This new virtual classroom seminar will provide an essential guide to Part A1 moratoriums, focusing on providing practical guidance for those advising companies in financial distress which are considering their use.
