A Debt Agreement is an offer to creditors that is permissible under Part IX of the Bankruptcy Act. Bankruptcy Brisbane recommends Part IX Debt Agreements to patrons who wish to avoid formal bankruptcy and have adequate resources remaining or small enough debts outstanding to facilitate doing so. Debt Agreements are fundamentally an agreement between you and your creditors, wherein your debts will be seen as settled once you have either payed off the full amount in affordable instalments (generally over a 3-5 year time span), or paid one lump-sum that is less than the total amount due but still satisfactory to your creditors (e.g. you might pay 80 cents on each dollar payable). Bankruptcy Brisbane can usually offer inexpensive Part IX Debt Agreements to our clients who are insolvent, but have not previously been bankrupt or subject to similar agreements. Speak to Bankruptcy Brisbane today and find out if you could be eligible for a Part IX Debt Agreement.

A second option to avoid formal bankruptcy that is potentially accessible to our clients in Brisbane is known as a Personal Insolvency Agreement (PIA). Bankruptcy Brisbane can suggest PIAs under the legislative provisions of Part X of the Bankruptcy Act. Generally, PIAs are for those who have large amounts of debt, but still wish to avoid formal bankruptcy measures. Akin to a Debt Agreement (see above), a PIA will let you pay off your debts in instalments or in a one-off lesser sum. However, as PIAs relate to larger amounts of debt, they necessitate the appointment of a trustee to supervise the arrangement and transfer of assets. Bankruptcy Brisbane will assign an experienced trustee for you and coordinate terms of settlement that embody the best interests of your future finance. There are, however, certain detriments and consequences to PIAs, so before considering entering into one it is imperative that you speak with the competent Insolvency Experts at Bankruptcy Brisbane.

As stated above, occasionally your state of affairs will mean that bankruptcy is inevitable (almost certainly through no fault of your own). This is nothing to be alarmed about: bankruptcy is a process to help you, not hurt you. If your monetary troubles do necessitate bankruptcy, this phase will generally last for three years; however, there is an alternative that Bankruptcy Brisbane can offer. Section 73 Proposals allow our clients to annul their bankruptcy significantly earlier than is customary, allowing for all of the positive effects of the process while minimising the detriments. Through professional, affordable services for Section 73 Proposals, Bankruptcy Brisbane could help you to end your bankruptcy after a matter of mere months instead of the customary three years. Even if your financial difficulties are so great that bankruptcy is unavoidable, Bankruptcy Brisbane can still provide a light at the end of the tunnel and ensure your financial future is secured as quickly and affordably as possible.
