Pre-pack sales to connected parties in administrations

Just a reminder that the legislation concerning sales to connected parties in pre-pack situations is now in force.

The legislation includes provisions to refer any such sale to an independent evaluator who will inspect / sanction the transaction. Alternatively, the administrator could also seek creditor approval should the sale take place withing 8 weeks of the appointment.

It is worth remembering that to act as an evaluator an individual has to be ‘satisfied that their relevant knowledge and experience is sufficient for the purposes of making a qualifying report’, must have professional indemnity insurance, is independent and has not been convicted of an offence involving dishonesty or deception.
