Bankruptcy is removed from the Insolvency Register three months after you have completed the 12 month bankruptcy. For those who don’t know, the Insolvency Register is a record of all court-sanctioned debt arrangements i.e. Debt Relief Orders, IVAs and bankruptcies. It is in the public domain and can be accessed by anybody by simply Googling the word and searching by ‘all courts in England and Wales’. Some people confuse The Insolvency Register with an individual’s credit file and believe it stays on there for six years. It doesn’t.
