What is the bankruptcy register?

Just like births, deaths and marriages bankruptcy is a matter of public record. Bankruptcy is recorded on what is called an Insolvency register which is sometimes referred to as the Bankruptcy register.

IVAs and Debt Relief Orders are also included on the insolvency register. They can be viewed online at the Insolvency Service website and also at your local Official Receiver’s Office.

The person’s details including their name, address, date of birth, occupation, arrangement date, status of the bankruptcy, the court where the case was heard and whether or not a Bankruptcy Restrictions Order was made, will all be included on the register.

Once there has been a date of discharge your details will stay on the Bankruptcy register for another three months after this date.
