Frequently Asked Questions

How Does Bankruptcy Finish?

Bankruptcy lasts for 3 years and finishes automatically. You do not apply to be released from bankruptcy - it happens automatically at the end of the 3 years.

Bankruptcy can also be finished, if during the 3-year period all liabilities and costs of the bankruptcy are paid, or a Part 4 Scheme is approved by a meeting of creditors.
