We are pleased to introduce this important publication titled "Financial and Tax Considerations for Distressed Companies and their Creditors".

This is the first book that INSOL International has published that covers tax issues. We have accepted that in most countries tax issues and tax treatments change constantly and that tax laws are changing sooner than some of the other laws. We decided however not to be deterred by these constant changes and move on to produce this book as INSOL’s objective was wider. The book aims to provide practical guidance to insolvency practitioners who are dealing with restructuring financially distressed companies, about the tax position of a country before they consult the tax experts in those countries.

The first part of the book deals with the general insolvency considerations of a country and the latter part deals with the more specific tax issues. Each country chapter therefore has an interesting collection of information that cover the insolvency laws and guidelines that will be applicable in a restructuring, and also tax issues such as debt forgiveness, debt-for equity swap or debt for debt swaps in restructuring plans. It then covers the various tax considerations that affect plans and discusses the practical difficulties that may be encountered and how they may be dealt with or avoided.

Copies of this publication are available for £100 plus postage and package. Please contact Jelena Sisko at INSOL International to order a copy jelena@insol.ision.co.uk

The idea that led to this publication was first discussed by the "Smaller Practice Issues Committee" of INSOL International in
order to provide its members with a practical guide illustrating the rights (and obligations!) of creditors within the most important insolvency systems around the globe. This publication, while focusing on the position of creditors, also offers a short introduction into the structure of the insolvency proceedings in respect of the
countries that are covered in this publication.

Each article is structured based on a template of questions as far as this is actually possible in consideration of the great differences
that mark the various proceedings around the world. This allows an easier and more immediate comparison between the
position of creditors in the different countries.

The cost of this publication is £100 plus postage and package

The INSOL Lenders Group initiated a project to
produce a guidance booklet for insolvency practitioners and others on matters relating to the impact of credit derivatives in restructurings. The working group of this project worked on the draft for over 18 months and in October 2006 INSOL launched a booklet entitled “Credit Derivatives in Restructurings”. The objective of the publication is to raise awareness and promote understanding of relevant issues, and to provide a point of reference for those involved in restructurings.
The book covers an overview of the credit derivatives market, basic elements of credit default swaps, settlement following a credit event, and a comparison with other types of credit products and techniques.
The book also includes several practice points.

The book is divided into 12 country chapters and is presented in a question and answer format that makes it a very user friendly.

Each chapter covers a wide range of key issues that are important to insolvency practitioners including the type of security rights available in each jurisdiction, how security rights are enforced, grounds upon which security rights can be challenged or avoided if they are deemed to have given preferential treatment prejudicing the rights of the debtor or third parties. The chapters also deal with priorities and how creditors can protect their rights against a debtor interests. Issues that are particularly relevant to secured creditors in the event of corporate reorganisations are also covered.
