Contact an official receiver

An official receiver manages at least the first stage of bankruptcies and companies wound up by a court. 

For example, they: 

  • collect and protect assets for creditors after someone has been made bankrupt 
  • find out the reasons for the insolvency 
  • act as trustee or liquidator where no private sector insolvency practitioner is appointed 
You cannot get debt advice from an official receiver. For free debt advice contact National Debtline.
