Am I eligible for a DOI?

You are able to lodge a declaration of intention to present a debtor's petition (DOI) if:
  • We have not accepted a DOI from you in the last 12 months.
  • You are not currently bankrupt (or waiting on a bankruptcy application to be accepted/rejected).
  • You are not currently in a debt agreement
  • You are not in a personal insolvency agreement and the subject of a controlling trustee or Section 188 authority[?].
  • A creditor has not already applied to the court to make you bankrupt.
  • You are present in Australia or have a residential or business connection to Australia.

There is no minimum or maximum amount of debt you need to be eligible.

There is no fee to apply.
