A history of bankruptcy may make an individual unsuitable for certain professional positions, such as managing a company. As a result, it's important that a business like yours conduct a bankruptcy check before exposing your finances to a new business partner or corporation.
In Australia, the Insolvency and Trustee Service Australia (ITSA) manages the bankruptcy process. The national register it maintains, the National Personal Insolvency Index (NPII), includes both individuals who were declared bankrupt following an application from creditors and individuals who nominated themselves for bankruptcy.
Business Credit Express, a part of Veda (formerly Baycorp Advantage), offers clients a comprehensive Bankruptcy Search report that's built around key datasets including:
- Administration type
- Petition type
- Administration number
- Dated entered on the NPII
- Date discharge due
