What’s the difference between Bankruptcy and a Debt Agreement?

Many consumers are unaware of the consequences of declaring bankruptcy, and often do not realise that there are alternatives, the most popular being a Debt Agreement.

If you declare bankruptcy, the following restrictions on you can be enforced:

Travel Restrictions

If bankrupt, you must request permission to travel overseas and often you will need to show where the money to fund your trip has come from.

Yearly assessments of income & compulsory contributions

When bankrupt, your trustee will need to conduct an annual assessment of your income to see if you have become liable for compulsory income contributions. If you earn over a certain amount you still have to make payment contributions towards your debts.

Automatic loss of assets

When you declare bankruptcy, your trustee will make an assessment as to what assets you can keep and what assets will need to be surrendered. This may include you house and cars.

Furthermore, whilst you are bankrupt, you cannot purchase any assets.

A debt agreement however, allows you to negotiate a payment plan with your creditors whereby no further interest, service fees or default fees are able to be charged.

Travel Restrictions

In a Debt Agreement, there is no restriction on travel or reporting requirements.

Yearly assessments of income & compulsory contributions

Under a Debt Agreement, there is no requirement for your income to be assessed annual and your repayments modified based on your earnings. This means if you get a higher paid job after entering into your Debt Agreement, you will be able to either pay off your debt sooner, or put money into your savings account.

Automatic loss of assets

In a Debt Agreement, you get to keep all of your assets.
