Unsecured Debts and Bankruptcy


Are you thinking of going Bankrupt, but can't afford it then read on as help maybe at hand!

In England and Wales:

  • the bankruptcy court fee is £175
  • the official receiver’s fee is £525

If you are on a low income or receive certain benefits, the £175 court fee may be waived use an EX160 form from the court service. Whatever your circumstances, the official receiver’s fee always has to be paid!
If you lack the £525 needed you can apply to a trust fund. Charis Grants can help you do this.
Charis works with a number of utility companies (EDF / British Gas etc) and Local Authorities to deliver a number of Charitable Trusts, Hardship Funds, Welfare Schemes, Rebate Schemes and Social Tariffs.
