Insolvency Service IT upgrade delayed

Plans to shut down Insolvency Service's technology for ten days is pushed back by more than two weeks

The Insolvency Service is to delay its planned shutdown of IT systems at the
head office and regional Official Receiver offices by more than two weeks.

Implementing the Service’s IT project, Enabling the Future, requires it
shutting all electronic filing and payments for ten days from 16 July to 26
July. The full live rollout will take up to 2 August.

The shutdown date was originally due to start from 2 July to 12 July.

The Insolvency Service said: “We recognise moving the shutdown period may
mean re-planning payment schedules for some and I apologise for any
inconvenience this may cause, but I am sure users will agree that it is
important to get the system right from the start.”

The shutdown will also mean that any payments requested by insolvency
practitioners, on behalf of creditors, to the Official Receiver will not be
processed. The Official Receiver pays out approximately £19m a week to
creditors.

Final confirmation of the Service’s shutdown date will be at the end of July.
