#253773 Please be aware that with effect Monday 4th April 2011, the court fees required to enable a person to become Bankrupt will rise to £175.00 per person. This represents an increase of £25 per person.

If you are on a low income then you may be able to all or part of this fee remissed (paid for) but you will need to complete a court form EX160A BEFORE attending the court, as you will need to obtain some proofs,etc.

If you do not do this before the court date, they you will have to pay the full fee and then claim this back

You can obtain the form from the HMCS website or currently by clicking this link:
