European Union Regulation on Insolvency Proceedings: An Introductory Analysis, Fourth Edition

This updated edition describes the framework of the European Insolvency Regulation Recast (adopted in June 2017), reviews its major rules, highlights the differences from the old EIR 2000, and makes references to the most important and recent cases of the Court of Justice of the European Union. An essential guide for non-European judges, practitioners and scholars who are confronted with this domain of law, as well as anyone dealing with EU-related cross-border cases, this book serves as a concise and comprehensive introduction to the EIR Recast.

Guide To Islamic Finance

This book is the latest addition to our list of publications and it provides basic information on Islamic finance. It is meant to be a useful reference tool to the majority of insolvency practitioners who do not work in this field. The chapters in this book were selected on the basis that it is expected that most INSOL members currently have very limited understanding of Islamic finance.

The book has 10 chapters, a country study, and an annexure with a glossary of Islamic finance terms. Following the introductory chapter there are chapters on:

§ Murabaha § Istisna’a and ijara Financing : Background and Practical Implementation § Mudaraba and Musharaka Financing: Background and Practical Implementation § Islamic Financing in the Bank Market § Islamic Capital Markets § Restructuring Islamic Facilities § Restructuring Sukuk Transactions § Islamic Funds § Islamic Derivatives

The Avoidance of Antecedent Transactions and Cross-border Insolvency

The INSOL international has published a book on antecedent transactions and its applicability in cross-border insolvency situations.

Since most insolvencies span many jurisdictions there are specific issues that IPs are faced with when applying to court to avoid antecedent transactions. The book explores some of these specific issues – particularly from a practical point. Some of the key areas covered are: • Various claims that can be made to avoid antecedent transactions • Typical defenses to such claims • Are foreign judgments avoiding antecedent transfers enforceable? • Barriers to access to judicial assistance against foreign claimants • How will a court determine issues of foreign law • Applicability of the UNCITRAL Model law on foreign insolvency claims • What should a foreign claimant expect with respect to discovery or disclosure, including any limitations on scope, mandatory disclosures, working co-operatively with opposing counsel and a discussion about timing and fees.

The book has 20 country chapters and each chapter is based on a standard template of questions.

2005 Global Marketplace Survey
In the current global insolvency market it is critical that key market players in the profession are kept informed of what is happening in their respective regions and beyond. In 2000, a survey was carried out on our members’ marketplace around the world which provided an insight into the differing insolvency landscapes across the world. Five years on, it was felt that it was important once again to see if new evaluations of the marketplace could be made. INSOL's 2005 Global Marketplace Survey shows that our membership, from a wide variety of backgrounds, cultures and jurisdictions have a remarkably similar view on a number of key issues facing the market and profession. Several hundred members responded to the survey giving a sample, which, principally due to the consistency of response, probably reflects the views of INSOL members quite accurately.

Financial and Tax Consideration for Distressed Companies and their Creditors
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 ISBN : 978-1-907764-12-7
