FAQs | Applying for Bankruptcy
No, your bankruptcy will not be advertised in the media.
Your bankruptcy will be recorded with the Australian Financial Security Authority (AFSA) on the National Personal Insolvency Index and is noted on your credit report for 5 years.
For someone to find out if you are bankrupt, they would need to go to AFSA and pay for a search on the National Personal Insolvency Index, providing your exact name.
