Government agrees to reduce debt relief to 3 years

(CIANEWS) - The Government approved the implementing amendment to the Insolvency Act. The key elements include a reduction of the current length of debt settlement from the current 5 years to 3 years. It ensures that the insolvency regimes for both entrepreneurial and non-entrepreneurial natural persons are unified in the most essential parameters in line with European legislation. In order to give priority to the satisfaction of creditors of maintenance claims, usually single mothers, the proposal allows enforcement deductions to be made from the debtor's wages even after the insolvency proceedings have been opened.
