Are You Eligible for Bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy is a formal debt process in which you legally declare you cannot pay your debts. To be eligible for bankruptcy in South Australia, you must
prove you are unable to pay your debts when they’re due
have a business or residential connection in Australia, or be living in Australia
If you do not meet these two requirements, you will not be eligible for bankruptcy.

What are Some of The Positives About Bankruptcy?

There are a lot of “myths” (lies) out there about bankruptcy that leave people in Adelaide feeling confused or afraid. However, most of these arise from misunderstandings, and sadly, all they do is scare people from getting help to get rid of their debt. There’s no denying that bankruptcy can have serious consequences, however for a lot of people the immediate emotional and financial relief of wiping their debt and starting afresh far outweighs the consequences.

It is important that you fully understand the pros and cons of bankruptcy in order to make an informed decision about whether bankruptcy might be good option for your specific financial and personal circumstances. They include:

Bankruptcy is not a life sentence. The bankruptcy term does end, and you can move on after bankruptcy.
Bankruptcy will permanently cancel most of your debts. This includes credit card debt, payday loans, personal loans, the shortfall on secured debt and even personal guarantees, and the list goes on. However, there are some debts which the bankruptcy does not cancel.
Vehicles can be protected. If you have cars and bikes that are valued less than $8,150, then these will be yours to keep and protected in bankruptcy. This amount is regularly adjusted for CPI. If you bought them on under a finance arrangement you must continue to make the loan payments.

The Bankruptcy Process in Adelaide

There are three significant steps involved in the bankruptcy process in Adelaide & South Australia.
Filing a Bankruptcy Application – The first step of a bankruptcy declaration is submitting a bankruptcy application. You can either do that yourself or the Fix Bad Credit Bankruptcy Solutions team in Adelaide can assist with filling in all the paperwork and submitting it to the Australian Financial Security Authority (AFSA) on your behalf. You can also be made bankrupt if one of your creditors lodges a creditor’s petition and a court makes an order to bankrupt you.
The AFSA Decision – If your bankruptcy application is accepted by AFSA, you will be declared bankrupt. Bankruptcy decisions are usually made within 24 or 48 hours of submitting the application, and once done you cannot cancel it.
Someone else takes control – Once you are declared bankrupt a trustee is appointed to take control of your financial situation, becoming your guardian and guarantor. Your trustee takes over managing your debts and works out how best to pay back what you can afford.

Bankruptcy in the Era of COVID-19

The economic impact of COVID-19 is creating significant challenges for both individuals and businesses. As a result, commonwealth legislative changes came into effect from 25 March 2020 to provide immediate relief for people facing financial difficulty due to the economic impacts of COVID-19. The temporary changes included:
an increase in the debt threshold, which enabled creditors to apply for a bankruptcy notice
an increase to the timeframe for a debtor to respond to a bankruptcy notice
an increase to the temporary debt protection period available to debtors.
As of 1 January 2021, those temporary changes have ceased. An amendment has also been made to adjust the bankruptcy threshold. This means:
the minimum amount of debt that can trigger bankruptcy is $10,000, down from $20,000
temporary debt protection allows for 21 days relief from creditors, instead of six months.
Your Fix Bad Credit bankruptcy advisor in Adelaide can keep you advised of any other changes to the bankruptcy legislation if and when they come into effect.
