Bankruptcy Procedures

​The Bankruptcy Co​mmission has worked since its establishment to provide instructive materials in the form of guides, templates and tools that aim to facilitate and clarify the regulations of the bankruptcy procedures.

The beneficiaries can understand the stages of every bankruptcy procedure by visiting the page of the main seven bankruptcy procedures.

Each procedure's page contains a journey that illustrates the procedure's steps and stages, as well as the stakeholders' roles and responsibilities. The page contains a guide to the commencement of bankruptcy procedure and a card that illustrates the information and documents required while the commencement of the procedure.

You can use the interactive guide to identify the most appropriate bankruptcy procedure​
