If you are owed money, we understand what a stressful time it can be. Usually the first course of action is to issue a letter of demand. Trying to find a solution, especially when it’s a complex situation, can be difficult and time consuming.

If the debtor hasn’t issued an alternative solution such as a debt agreement proposal (Part X Agreement), then you may decide to issue a bankruptcy notice. This is a complex process and obtaining legal advice is essential. Contact us today if you are owed money.

If you owe money that you are unable to pay back you may have to declare bankruptcy. There are four formal options under the Bankruptcy Act 1966, these are: Declaration of intention to present a debtor’s petition, Bankruptcy, Debt agreement, and Personal insolvency agreements. Informal options are also available.

If you find yourself in a situation where you cannot pay your debts, it is crucial to seek professional advice to ensure a workable solution is found quickly. Get help today.
