How Can You Get Rid Of Debt

If you’re struggling to get on top of your debt in Brisbane, are being harassed by creditors and your credit history is preventing you from entering into an informal debt arrangement such as debt consolidation, then a formal debt arrangement, like bankruptcy, might be an option for you.

For people in Brisbane experiencing financial hardship, Fix Bad Credit provides bankruptcy advice. If you are considering filing for bankruptcy, below is some information to help ensure it goes as smoothly as possible.

What are the alternatives to Bankruptcy?

People often turn to bankruptcy as the first option when struggling with their debt. However, you may be surprised to learn it’s not the only option. If informal debt arrangements are not available to you, a formal debt solution such as a debt agreement, is often a better alternative to declaring bankruptcy.

Formal Debt Solutions

There are other formal options for managing your debt under the Bankruptcy Act 1966, each having benefits and serious consequences. They include:
Debt Agreement – A formal legally binding (Part IX or Part 9) Debt Agreement helps you deal with unmanageable unsecured debts such as credit cards or personal loans. Your debt will likely be reduced to an agreed amount and the remainder you will be able to pay back through affordable regular periodic or lump sum payments. Find out more here.
Personal Insolvency Agreement – A Personal Insolvency Agreement is a formal, legally binding arrangement that is between you and your creditors to satisfy your debts. The arrangement could consist of a contribution of your income over a period of time or an assignment of your assets. It is the last option considered before filing for bankruptcy.

Informal Debt Solutions

If you’re having difficulty making your repayments, you may want to try to reach an informal agreement with your creditors. Whilst informal debt solutions are not legally binding, they are likely to have fewer serious consequences than formal debt arrangements. Your creditors may be willing to:

✓ give you more time to pay your debts
✓ give you a lower interest rate
✓ charge you fewer penalties

Informal debt solutions in Brisbane could involve one, or a combination, of the following:

A Debt Moratorium, also known as a payment holiday or payment deferral, to either stop or reduce your payments and interest over a short period of time (usually between 3 to 12 months) to enable you to get back on your feet or to put other arrangements in place.
Debt Consolidation by bringing your existing multiple debts together into one single new loan, subject to a single interest rate, with a single regular (usually monthly) repayment it makes managing your debts significantly easier.
Debt Negotiation his involves discussions with your creditors to informally renegotiate the terms of your loan, this might mean settling the debt for less than the full amount, lower interest rates, reduced fees and/or extending the length of the loan to reduce the size of your minimum payments.
Debt Settlement If you have access to a lump sum, a debt settlement may help. A debt settlement is an informal arrangement with your creditors that offers less than the full amount you owe in order to wipe out the debt completely.
A longer-term informal arrangement a long term informal arrangement can last several years and often involves reducing your minimum repayments, reducing or freezing the interest owed over the period if you need more time to get back on your feet or to put other arrangements in place.

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 Brisbane bankruptcy advisor can keep you advised of any other changes to the bankruptcy legislation if and when they come into effect.

I was skeptical at first, but Fix Bad Credit really changed my life. My credit score was terrible and I didn't know what to do. But after working with them, my credit score is now in the 700s! They were able to get me a loan for a new car and even helped me get a lower interest rate on my mortgage. Thank you so much for helping me fix my credit!
