Personal service are words that you may hear being thrown around when you hear solicitors talk about bankruptcy petitions. That is because under rule 6.14 of the Insolvency Rules 1986, in order to validly serve a bankruptcy petition on a debtor, it must be personally served. Put simply, this means you have to actually deliver the petition to the debtor. It will therefore not be sufficient to put it in the post!

What a week! I don’t know about you, but the last episode of Game of Thrones had us on the edge of our seats! Nail biting stuff! Just kidding. We are of course talking about Brexit. Whether you were for or against Brexit, the country has spoken and the UK is on course to leave the EU.
It seems that with the rising anxieties over immigration, which recently has been fuelled by the media throughout the EU referendum campaign, UK policymakers have attempted to draw up policies to manage migration.
The Immigration Act 2016, which was approved by the government on 12th May 2016 is set to make it easier for landlords to evict tenants who are illegally residing in the UK.
Domestic abuse does not have to involve actual physical violence. It can be many other forms of behaviour to include threats, humiliation and intimidation. It can also include behaviour such as stopping a partner socialising, controlling their social media accounts, surveillance through apps or dictating what they wear.
With a major sporting event like Euro 2016 around the corner, it is a fantastic opportunity for employees to keep spirits high in the office.

A famous quote comes to mind as I begin to write this post. "No one has ever become poor by giving" (Anne Frank, diary of Anne Frank).

In the summer 2015 Budget, the Government introduced a charge on some UK employers called the “apprenticeship levy”. It is expected to raise £3bn each year which will be used to fund new apprenticeships; the aim being 3 million by the end of 2020.
We have read the headlines, we have seen the TV advert, and we all know that the National Living Wage (NLW) comes into force on April Fools Day. Since the proposal was announced in the Summer Budget 2015, there has been much debate and media coverage surrounding the NLW.
