This guidance describes the general functions of Accountant in Bankruptcy, interim trustees, trustees and commissioners in relation to their responsibilities regarding bankruptcies which started on or after 30 November 2016.


16.5 Making an investigation application

As the restrictions imposed by a BRO are stringent the application will need to satisfy the Accountant the allegations are both accurate and supported by evidence.

The application should be submitted using BASYS together with all supporting documentary evidence including:

  • transcript of an interview with the debtor
  • written statements from creditors or other potential witnesses
  • supporting documents and statements from relevant persons or organisations
  • list of creditors, if not already attached to the case
  • a copy of the supplementary questionnaire, if not already attached to the case

See the BRO User Guide.
