* This is the maximum number of days that is usually taken by the insolvency practitioners we work with to process the paperwork and the timescales dictated by the Court and Insolvency Act 1986.

No allowance has been made for the length of time that it takes a client to return paperwork or file paperwork at Court, as this varies significantly from client to client.
