When you become bankrupt your name is recorded on the National Personal Insolvency Index (NPII) which is maintained by the Australian Financial Security Authority. Your bankruptcy is also recorded on your credit record for 5 years. Also referred to as the Australian bankruptcies list, the NPII allows individuals to search for bankruptcy records and verify if a person is bankrupt or has been discharged from bankruptcy. This public list of bankruptcies also provides information on insolvency related matters such as personal insolvency agreements, and debt agreements.
