National Personal Insolvency Index (NPII)

The National Personal Insolvency Index (NPII) is a publicly available electronic record of some personal insolvency proceedings in Australia.

The NPII provides information about individuals who have been subject to proceedings under the Bankruptcy Act 1966 from August 1928.

It does not include any information on company liquidations or administrations.

If you'd like to do a search on the NPII see Bankruptcy Register Search for steps on how to do this.
