Joint Insolvency Examinations (JIEB)

How do I study for the JIEB exams?

The JIEB continues to be an extensive exam determined to rigorously test a students knowledge in the area of insolvency law and practice.

Successful graduates are prepared for the tasks ahead and to apply for their insolvency licence as they embark on their first appointments. 

The demands on an Insolvency Practitioner, plus the level of trust, integrity and technical knowledge make this a professional qualification of the highest standard.

The JIEB exams are held once a year, usually in November. There are three papers:

  • Liquidations
  • Administrations, Company Voluntary Arrangements (CVAs) and Receiverships
  • Personal Insolvency

To pass the JIEB exam you have to pass all three papers, though you don't have to sit them all at once.

To take the exams, you must first register with one of the recognised professional bodies. The JIEB exam is a practical exam and tests the knowledge and skills that insolvency practitioners use when working within the sector.
