Bankruptcy Record Check

Discover if your candidate can be trusted in a role within the finance industry.

This is particularly critical for certain executive or managerial roles where eligibility can be impacted if an individual has a history of bankruptcy. The Bankruptcy Record Check searches all bankruptcy records dating back to 1928 on the National Personal Insolvency Index to determine if an individual is bankrupt or formerly bankrupt. Commonly used for occupations such as accountants, loan officers, mortgage insurers, fund managers, chief financial officers, and directors. Information is obtained from the Australian Financial Security Authority (AFSA) and will include the following details:

• Type of administration or proceeding
• Date of administration or proceeding
• ID number
• Full name and alias of debtor
• Address of debtor
• Date of birth of debtor
• Occupation and business name of debtor
• Particulars of any prior or subsequent listing
• End date of the administration

Note: This check is conducted on an individual’s current full name, so if an individual was known by any other names, it is recommended that a Bankruptcy Check be conducted on each additional name.
