Bankruptcy Costs

This section covers the costs you will have to pay if you want to decalre yourself bankrupt.

In England and Wales bankruptcy fees total £705.

You may have to pay 3 fees when you take your petition and statement of affairs to court:

  • The court fee of £180. In some circumstances the court may waive this fee; for example, if you are on Income Support. If you are not sure whether you qualify for a reduction in the fee or whether you are exempt from paying the fee, court staff will be able to advise you.
  • The deposit of £525 towards the costs of administering your bankruptcy. This deposit is payable in all cases.
  • The fee to swear the statement of affairs. In a county court, no charge is made to swear this affidavit, which is part of the statement of affairs. But in the High Court or before a solicitor there is a £7-10 charge

Joint Bankruptcy

If you are a married couple and you are both applying for bankruptcy, you will each have to pay separate fees. If you were in business as a partnership, each partner will have to pay separate fees, unless all the partners apply for a joint bankruptcy petition under the Insolvent Partnerships Order 1994 (Form 16). Form 16 is available from the court or a copy can be printed from The Insolvency Service website at: www.gov.uk/government/organisations/insolvency-service

The above fees should be paid in cash or postal orders, or by a cheque from a building society, bank or solicitor. Cheques should be made payable to H M Paymaster General. Personal cheques will not be accepted.

Fantastic,they are life savers.

I Contacted them at 5 pm on a Thursday night,they arranged a meeting Friday morning with all the relevant bodies their because my case was the following Monday .I can't sing their praises high enough they contacted the courts same afternoon. Fantastic response, I avoided bankruptcy on the Monday and was given time to arrange an Iva. I risked losing my home,my mother and fathers home all hope seemed lost until I made that fateful phone call. I can now sleep at night.
