Increasing access to Debt Relief Orders in Northern Ireland

CAP responded to the Department for the Economy’s consultation on the proposal to increase the eligibility limits under the Northern Ireland Debt Relief Order (DRO) scheme. CAP broadly supports the proposal for Northern Ireland to align with the rest of the DRO rules for England & Wales. CAP has, however, raised a number of practical concerns around the £30,000 limit, the asset limit, the £90 fee, and technical challenges that currently surround submitting DROs.
