How entering bankruptcy may assist you
When you declare Bankruptcy, you will be released from your debts and your creditors will no longer be calling, emailing, sending letters, and knocking on your door.
Below are some ways Bankruptcy can relieve the burden of debt:
• The pressure is taken off you because you don’t have to deal with your creditors
• Legal action against you to recover many types of debt will stop.
• The Sheriff will not be able to take your essential household goods
• You will be able to keep some protected property such as essential household goods and a motor vehicle (speak to our debt expert for more information and the conditions that apply)
• You can still earn an income
• Most of your debts are cancelled.
How entering bankruptcy may impact you:
Property/Assets – Some assets may be used to cover your debts.
Your bank account – If you have over a certain amount of cash on hand in your bank account, it may be used to cover your debts.
Money or property received while you are bankrupt– If you inherit or win money or property while you are bankruptcy, it will be impacted.
Paying contributions – If you earn over a certain amount, you may have to pay contributions towards your debts.
Work – Some industries will not allow those that work in the profession if they are bankrupt.
Company Director – You can only be a director of a company or otherwise actively involved in the management of a company, if approved by the court.
Credit, rental property and other services – Your credit report will be impacted for up to 5 years or 2 years from your discharge, whichever is longer, and will be publicly listed on the National Personal Insolvency Index indefinitely. It may also have an effect on your ability to rent property, access telecommunications and other services.
Restrictions on borrowing and trading – you can only borrow up to a certain amount, accept goods on credit or hire purchase up to a certain value, or offer to supply goods or services up to a certain value without disclosing to the lender or customer that you are an undisclosed bankrupt.
Overseas travel restrictions – You can only travel overseas with the permission of your trustee.
Limits on legal proceedings – You can only take or continue legal proceedings without the permission of your trustee except in relation to personal injury to you or your family.
