IT services: essential supplies to insolvent businessesBy Simon Morrissey, Sarah Lampard
Recent changes to the Insolvency Act 1986 which came into force on 1 October identify the provision of certain IT goods and service as ‘essential supplies’. As a general rule, suppliers of such services will no longer be able to rely on insolvency-related terms to terminate supply or to compel higher payments for continued supply. These changes apply to contracts entered into after 1 October 2015. Supplier terms and conditions should be reviewed as a consequence and suppliers need to be aware of the limited grounds they can rely on to terminate.
