What is a place of residence?
2 min read
A debtor dual citizen of Japan and Taiwan obtained an order for his own bankruptcy in England. A judgment creditor applied to annul that bankruptcy order on the grounds of jurisdiction. That application was dismissed by an ICCJ, who found that the debtor was not domiciled or ordinarily resident in England or Wales, nor had he carried on business there, but did have a place of residence. The creditor appealed that decision to the High Court.
