How does Fix Bad Credit help?

It’s Fix Bad Credit’s job to present the options to help you find the best way to hit the reset button, clean the slate, and get on with life without debt holding you back. Our highly skilled, experienced bankruptcy experts will take care of all the uncomfortable requirements throughout the entire process, as you get on with living with your best life in the Gold Coast. Ensuring that when it’s time to come out the other side of bankruptcy, you are in the best shape possible to rebuild your financially secure future.

Will my credit score be affected?

Some people think that applying for bankruptcy means you will have a bad credit score for life. But this is wrong. Truth is, your score will be destroyed for the first three years after you declare bankruptcy, after this you are known as a “discharged” bankrupt. It can be a challenge to obtain loans during this period but it’s not impossible, and we can help. However, after 5 years (or 2 years after you are a discharged bankrupt) your credit score will improve and you can even get it looking perfect again.

How do you become bankrupt in the Gold Coast?

Bankruptcy is the process in which you legally declare you cannot pay your debts. To be eligible for bankruptcy in the Gold Coast, 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.

You can either chose yourself to become bankrupt (called voluntary Bankruptcy), or under certain circumstances your creditors may apply to Bankrupt you through the courts, which is called a Creditor’s Petition.

Once you have been declared bankrupt, you can either nominate a trustee or the Australian Financial Security Authority (AFSA) will appoint one for you, to manage your finances on your behalf.
There is no minimum debt amount required in order for you to declare bankruptcy. However, if you have more than $10,000 in debt with a particular creditor, and the creditor has unsuccessfully tried to recover the debts you owe them, they can force you into bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy usually only affects unsecured debts, this means debts that are not tied to an asset such as your credit card debt or personal loans.

How entering bankruptcy may impact you:

If you are after bankruptcy advice in the Gold Coast, below are some matters that you need to assess and consider before entering into bankruptcy:
✓ 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 in 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 people to work in the profession if they are bankrupt.

✓ 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.

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

CJ was amazing. It's been a long process to fix my credit due to mistakes at a young age. So many other places were happy to take my money with no guarantee they will have success in helping. CJ told me plain and simple what I need to do and what will help. He didn't charge me a cent either. Gave his honest opinion woth a good 30 minute phone call and thoughts on what will genuinely help. I am going to put all this into place and give him a call in 6 months to discuss future moves towards buying a house. We all make mistakes in life and stress I've them. It's people like CJ that make you feel calm and believe it will all be ok with some solid advice. Thanks again CJ

When I was struggling with my credit, I didn't know who to turn to. I had heard of Fix Bad Credit, but I didn't know if they could really help me. But I decided to give them a try, and they completely blew me away. In just a few weeks, they were able to clear up all the mess that the other company had made. I'm so happy that I went with them - they saved me from a lot of hassle and stress. Thank you, Fix Bad Credit!

Myself and my partner engaged another credit repair company to assist with default removals, and cleaning up the credit file.Unfortunately they took our money, and that was all. The ombudsman became involved, but in the end we were left with nothing.The Fix Bad Credit team offered to help. And they certainly did that. Credit score is now above 800 and they are now assisting us with a $60k debt.It’s been life changing. I strongly recommend if you have debt, or credit issues, to reach out to the team at Fix Bad credit. Thanks again Carey absolute legend!!!

I went to the Fix Bad Credit team as I was living with the burden each month trying to pay back debt due to unforeseen life circumstances that had occurred over the last few years which often led me taking time off work and only making the minimal payments. As a single parent I felt I wasn't getting anywhere. The Fix Bad Credit team have negotiated a massive saving for me and managed to consolidate the remaining debt into monthly affordable payments without interest being incurred. Any issues I may have had on my credit report and have now been removed. I look forward to being able to purchase a home in the future which wouldn't have been possible before. Thanks so much Fix Bad Credit Team, super grateful.
