The English High Court has for the first time directly addressed the question of the extra-territorial application of s233 of the Insolvency Act 1986. The Official Receiver as Liquidator of Sahaviriya Streel Industries UK Ltd sought an order to restore access to an IT system provided to the Company by its parent company in Thailand. In granting permission to the Official Receiver to serve the application out of the jurisdiction, the Court was persuaded by the reasoning in the recent cases of Jetivia and Re Paramount Airways which concerned other provisions of the Insolvency Act 1986. The full judgment (Re Sahaviriya Steel Industries UK Ltd, Official Receiver v Sahaviriya Steel Industries Public Company Ltd [2015] EWHC 2877 (Ch)) provides a useful commentary on the factors a Court should consider when deciding which jurisdiction is the "appropriate forum" to hear an application in insolvency proceedings.
