In respect of director disqualifications, the Insolvency Service plan range for 2011/12 is 1,250 to 1,350, which is broadly in line with previous years.

In respect of bankruptcy and debt relief restrictions, the plan range for 2011/12 is 700 to 1,000, reflecting the significant fall in new bankruptcy case numbers.
