When is my name removed from the Insolvency Register?

When is my name removed from the Insolvency Register?

Your bankruptcy is removed from the Insolvency Register 15 months from the date you entered into bankruptcy or 3 months after discharge. The Insolvency Register is a public record of all those persons currently involved in Debt Relief Orders, Individual Voluntary Arrangements and Bankruptcies i.e. court sanctioned arrangements.

You are automatically discharged after 12 months and in some cases people are even discharged before the end of the 12 month period.

For those that for whatever reason have entered bankruptcy either voluntarily or involuntarily and have failed to cooperate with the Insolvency Service or trustee then there is a strong chance that they will have what is known as a bankruptcy restriction order against them. This can happen sometimes for innocent reasons such as moving home and not receiving letters from the Insolvency service. Or simply because there is sensitive information that is being requested that people either really don’t wan to answer or haven’t got or don’t know how to get information that is being requested. there is also the people who are just afraid and go into their shell and cant face what needs to be dealt with. Or they simply couldn’t find someone to assist them.

These include persons whose circumstances are unlikely to change viz. pensioners, people on DLA, etc. It is important that you obtain a certificate of discharge when you have completed the 12 month period and submit copies to the three main credit reference agencies, as there can be delays before information is updated. There is a charge for the discharge certificate, but it’s worth paying.

Insolvencies on the decline … but only just

The Insolvency Service has reported that the number of insolvencies has decreased by 4.6% compared with the same time last year, yet there were still a whopping 24,840 insolvencies throughout the UK.

The number of bankruptcies had eased somewhat due mainly to the introduction of Debt Relief Orders, which is a type of ‘mini bankruptcy’ for those on very low income with less than £15,000 of debt. However, bankruptcies may well increase again as continued disillusionment with IVAs results in people abandoning these in favour of bankruptcy.

Another factor which might lead to an increase in the number of court sanctioned insolvencies is a growing awareness of the futility of Debt Management Programmes. Most people realise that the capital is never paid off and that promises of interest rate freezes are only temporary.

To be fair, Debt Management Programmes do keep creditors at arm’s length, but they don’t solve the problem which is getting rid of the debt.

Bankruptcy UK offers a full bankruptcy administration service and will submit your bankruptcy application online. Court appearances are no longer required for bankruptcy. Call us for bankruptcy help on 01425 600129 or for an informal chat about your circumstances.

Bankruptcy Register

The Bankruptcy or Insolvency Register is a public record of all court-approved insolvency arrangements, including bankruptcy, Individual Voluntary Arrangements (IVAs) and Debt Relief Orders.

People who enter into the protection of bankruptcy can expect to appear on the bankruptcy register for 15 months, whereupon their name is removed. This information is in the public domain – google ‘Insolvency Register’ – which means that anybody can search for people in these court sanctioned debt arrangements, including bankruptcy.

Feel free to call us for a confidential chat about your circumstances on 01425 600129 or 0800 5977 977 and we will talk you through your options and how we can help you. We offer an a – z service, including the completion of all the forms and the all-important income and expenditure.
