- Are you able to supply details of the trust deeds that each firm practitioner has been involved with and what level of detail are you able to supply and what level of information do you hold.’ 

The Register of Insolvencies (the Register) is the online public register which holds information on individuals who are both bankrupt and subject to a PTD.

The Accountant in Bankruptcy has a statutory duty to maintain this Register.  Details of each live insolvency in Scotland is recorded in the Register:  https://roi.aib.gov.uk/roi.

You can complete a search of the Register using the name of the trustee and this will generate a list of all of their PTD appointments.  You can then access the information that is held for each of their PTDs.

I have not provided details of each Insolvency Practitioner’s PTD appointments as, in accordance with Section 25(1) of FOISA, this information can be reasonably obtained in the public Register.    

Additional information on PTDs and statistics, that you may find useful, is available on the Accountant in Bankruptcy’s website, via the following links:

https://www.aib.gov.uk/protected-trust-deed

https://www.aib.gov.uk/about/statistics-data

https://www.aib.gov.uk/guidance/information-management/aib-information-disclosure-log

 

This includes information on average monthly payments, average fees relating to PTDs and the average debt levels for PTDs.

The Accountant in Bankruptcy does retain a copy of each trust deed that has been protected and other supporting documents and forms pertaining to each PTD.
