KEY FACTS OF BANKRUPTCY, INSOLVENCY & REHABILITATION PROCEEDINGS UNDER ISRAELI LAW -
The Israeli Parliament (Knesset) passed a new statute regarding insolvency law, which is named the Insolvency and Rehabilitation Law-2018 (the "Law"). The Law was enacted on March 5, 2018 and came into force on
September 15, 2019. The Law offers a comprehensive reform and provides Israel with modern insolvency legislation dealing with both corporate and individual insolvency.
The Law has three primary objectives:
1. to promote the debtor’s economic rehabilitation;
2. to maximize the debt repayment to creditors and to divide the debtor’s pool of assets in a more equitable manner between the secured and unsecured creditors;
3. to increase the certainty and stability by streamlining processes and reducing the bureaucratic burden.
