I'm in the process of going bankrupt, im currently out of work. but if i had a job. what percentage does the official reciever take of my wages? and for how long.


If you have a surplus of income that exceeds £100 a month, you can be required to pay into a bankruptcy. The percentage begins at 50% and can be as high as 70% depending on how much of a surplus you have.

An example is you have £300 surplus after allowed living expenditures: the first £100 is yours and you could be required to pay 50% of the remaining £200, or £100 for three (3) years.

If you have a serious debt problem, bankruptcy can free you from your debts within 12 months. As a solution for dealing with serious debt, bankruptcy is a last resort. Other debt solutions need to be explored first, to help determine if bankruptcy is the right debt solution for you.


Your financial affairs are put into the hands of an Official Receiver or Trustee, who will control all your assets - and if you own a property, this will also be included. These will be sold and the money used to pay as much as possible to your creditors.


There are consequences to bankruptcy which will affect your finances and work life. You may struggle to borrow money, for example, and will not be able to apply for certain jobs.


For some, bankruptcy is the right option and will put an end to pressure from creditors. Our team of experts are on hand to advise on the best solution to your debt problems - call now on 0800 002 9951.
