AFSA’s new Bankruptcy Online service is now available, enabling people who wish to apply for bankruptcy to do this online.
Applying for bankruptcy through AFSA is free.
To apply online, set up an account with AFSA, provide the required personal identification details and download the Bankruptcy Form. You can save the form at any stage and complete it when it suits you. Once you’ve completed the form you can submit it to AFSA from your account. You’ll then be able to log in to check the status of your application at any time.
If you don’t have access to a computer, you can call us on 1300 364 785 and ask for a form to be mailed to you.
You can find more information see Bankruptcy Online - what's changing.
If you’re in financial difficulty, we recommend contacting a financial counsellor. Financial counsellors offer free, independent and confidential services to help you get back on track and discuss your options for dealing with unmanageable debt.
To speak with a financial counsellor contact the National Debt Helpline on 1800 007 007. This free hotline is open from 9:30am to 4:30pm Monday to Friday. There are also more tools and resources available online on the National Debt Helpline website.
