This section contains information on administrators, namely:
- first name;
- local address and contact information of the practice;
- certificate number;
- certificate expiry date.
Information on administrators whose certificates have expired can be found via the link Vēsturiskie dati [historical data]. For each administrator, the ‘Izziņa’ [certificate] link gives all information that was entered on the administrator in question in the insolvency register.
A search can be carried out for information on a specific subject (natural or legal person) in the ‘Meklēt’ [search] section of the insolvency register. A search for information can be carried out using the following criteria:
- debtor’s registration number (for legal persons) or personal identification number (for natural persons);
- debtor’s first name/surname or title;
- period of commencement of proceedings;
- type of proceedings (insolvency proceedings, legal protection proceedings, out-of-court redress proceedings);
- nature of proceedings (local, cross-border primary, cross-border secondary);
- status of proceedings (current, terminated, all proceedings);
Search results feature a link to ‘Izziņa’ [certificate], which provides free access to all entries made in the insolvency register of the Latvian enterprise register regarding specific proceedings, including scanned versions of the documents referred to in Article 9(4) of the Law on the enterprise register of the Republic of Latvia: agenda of creditors’ meeting and notification to creditors by the administrator about the creditors’ meeting.
Information on the entries made on a specific date can be found in the ‘Žurnāls’ [journal] section of the insolvency register. By default, the entries are for the current day.
