Scottish and English debt laws are different, so if you are a Scottish resident and have questions on debt, then this is the place to post.

#329683 Does anyone know if AIB will contact my new employer? I am applying for a job in an "X" Newsagents and the application is tailored for England (asking about CCJ's etc) however it asks if I have ever been declared Bankrupt. I am scared to declare "Yes" as in a previous job interview this definitely counted against me. Thanks

#329693 No the AIB doesn't, but you would be unwise not to declare it.

If you dont, then it later comes to light they could dismiss you for not telling the truth on the application form, and then when the next employer contact them for a reference they can legally point out that your honesty and integrity is not what would be expected.

You would be better to admit it and give a covering explanation as to the in's and out's.
