FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A Couple Things People Ask

What are the consequences of a personal insolvency agreement?

If you enter into a Personal Insolvency Agreement you are committing an Act of Bankruptcy - this means that a creditor can apply to the court to make you bankrupt if the PIA fails.

You are not allowed to manage a corporation during the PIA.

How long will a debt agreement stay on my credit file?

Your name and some other details will be recorded on the National Personal Insolvency Index (NPII) permanently.  Your details will appear on your credit file for up to 5 years, or longer in some cases.

I run a business, what do I need to know?

If trading under a business name or assumed name (whether alone or in partnership) the PIA must be disclosed to all people dealing with the business. If operating a sole trader business while in a Debt Agreement, you the debtor should include your full name in the business name; e.g. John Smith trading as Smith’s Shop.

What will it cost?

Fees change depending on the level of debt and the work involved. We guarantee you will pay less, including all fees and charges with Beyond Debt than you will under your current situation if you continued to make repayments. Have a chat with one of our Debt Consultants and they can calculate what your total payments will be including all fees and charges.

What happens to the interest on my debts?

All interest is frozen once a PIA is agreed to and signed by your Trustee. Interest will still be payable on secured or ineligible debts.
