Bankruptcy Advantages

Creditors stop pursuing you for payment, once a bankruptcy order has been made against you.

Free yourself from the pressure of overwhelming debt so you can make a fresh start.

Bankruptcy Considerations

Some debts cannot be written off, such as court fines.

Your bankruptcy will be publicised in newspapers.

Your bankruptcy will stay on your credit report for 6 years, making it difficult to obtain credit during this time frame.

You’ll have to disclose your bankruptcy if you apply for credit over £500.

You may lose your home, along with any other valuable assets.
