If I am an accountant how will bankruptcy affect me?

I am an accountant thinking of going bankrupt – how will it affect me? I have personal guarantees that I cannot meet. I am a partner of a licensed practice and looking for help with this debt. What should I do?

If you have unmanageable debt and need a fresh start, bankruptcy could be the answer. You didn’t mention whether you are a Director of the company; if you are, you will need to step down from that role, but can reapply  after 12 months. Likewise, there may be restrictions on practicing as a Chartered Accountant during the same period, though lesser roles might not be a problem.

We would also need to establish what assets you have and whether these might be under threat. For example, if you owned a property with negligible equity it wouldn’t be under any immediate threat. You could argue, however, that even if there was, say, £30,000 equity and the personal guarantees totalled £150,000, it might still be in your best interests to proceed. Until we have a complete picture we can’t say for certain and we therefore ask you to call in when you have time.

Bankruptcy UK specialises in taking people through the bankruptcy process in a straightforward manner. We will assess your circumstances then submit the bankruptcy application online. Court appearances are no longer required for bankruptcy. Call us for an informal chat on 01425 600129.
