Insolvency

The Insolvency Guidance Notes are issued with the view to harmonising the approach of members to questions of insolvency practice.

The Guidance Notes are prepared from the perspective of an insolvency practitioner operating under the laws of and practices in Malaysia. They are not prescriptive in nature and are strictly for guidance only.

MIA trusts that the issuance of the notes will help to improve the quality of insolvency practices. However, the Institute recognises that there may be instances where the circumstances encountered by a practitioner render it inappropriate to follow the guidance given in a particular Note. In these circumstances, the practitioner is required to exercise his professional judgement.

Preface to Insolvency Guidance Notes

This preface has been approved by the Council of the Malaysian Institute of Accountants for publication. The Guidance Notes represent what constitutes good practice in stated areas of insolvency.

The Guidance Notes are issued with the view to harmonising the approach of members to questions of insolvency practice. However, the Institute recognises that there may be instances where the circumstances encountered by a practitioner render it inappropriate for the guidance given in a particular Note to be followed.

The Guidance Notes are prepared from the perspective of an insolvency practitioner operating under the laws of and practices in Malaysia. Nevertheless, the Notes are not intended as a definite interpretation of the law, and the Institute disclaims liability for any loss or penalty suffered, or claims sustained, by any member as a consequence of his following the procedures set out in the Guidance Notes.

The Guidance Notes do not form part of the Institute’s By-Laws (On Professional Conduct and Ethics) [Revised 1 January 2007].

It is believed that the issuance of the notes will help to improve the quality of insolvency practices. They are not prescriptive in nature. The notes are for guidance only.
