What does our Bankruptcy Assistance Service include?
When you apply for Bankruptcy you will first need to complete your application form. You will then have an interview with the Official Receiver. This is daunting for many people. Our assistance service helps these things go smoothly.
Completion of your Bankruptcy Application Form
Your bankruptcy application form must be completed using the Government’s on-line system. We complete the on-line document with you during a telephone meeting.
Once your application has been submitted it will be reviewed by the Adjudicator. We will help you answer any questions that the Adjudicator may raise at this time.
Preparation for your interview with the Official Receiver
Once you are bankrupt you will have an interview with the Official Receiver (OR). This will normally be on the telephone. If you are self employed it will be face to face.
We make sure you are prepared to answer the questions you will be asked in your interview. We will also help you complete the documents that you will be sent for signing if you need help with these.
While you are Bankrupt
During your Bankruptcy we will always use reasonable endeavours to advise you should you have further questions or a change in circumstances.
How much does our Assistance Service Cost?
We charge an upfront fee for our Assistance Service. This is in addition to the standard Bankruptcy application fee which you will also have to pay. Our fee is as follows:
Single person Bankruptcy Application: £350
Couple Bankruptcy Application: £575
An increase to the standard fee may be charged for individuals or couples currently residing outside of the UK or for other individuals who require a more in depth assistance for example if you are self employed.
If you want there is nothing to stop you going through the Bankruptcy Process yourself with no additional help from Beat My Debt.
Duration of the Assistance Service
Once you have decided to go bankrupt the process can be implemented very swiftly. Our first job will be to complete your on-line bankruptcy application form.
We will arrange a mutually convenient time to go through the form with you over the telephone. This normally takes 2-3 hours. The form should be ready for submission within 1-2 days.
In most cases you will be declared bankrupt the next working day after your application has been submitted. Having said that in rare cases it may take longer. Officially the Adjudicator has up to 28 days to make their decision.
You will normally be Bankrupt for 12 months. During this time we will will endeavour to provide support and advice to you on the telephone. However we will not be contractually obliged to do this.
