No, although debt contracts are managed in accordance with bankruptcy law, they are an alternative to bankruptcy. However, by submitting a proposal, you are committing “an act of bankruptcy.” If your creditors accept your debt contract proposal, you will know exactly how much you must pay each week or fourteen days or a month for the duration of your agreement. This allows you to budget and plan your finances. You also do not pay interest on your debt agreement as soon as it has been accepted by the creditor and there are no late fees or penalties. Many lenders can only accept your application if you have been released from the debt agreement for up to two years. With a debt contract, your creditors agree to accept a sum of money that you can afford. You pay this over a certain period of time to pay off your debts. While you are under the debt agreement, you should not apply for financing of any kind. With insolvency, this will likely result in a decrease in your credit score for the five years of your contract.
Once the agreement is reached, your score should be increased accordingly. You can then start slowly rebuilding your credit, but make sure you don`t take more than you can process. Resolvr only collects this tax if you agree to propose your contract and pay the tax directly on your behalf to AFSA. Take the ball by calling us on 1300 351 008 or fill out our online form and we give you a free debt assessment. Suppose you have an unsecured debt totalling $35,000 and you can afford to offer $125 per week to your creditors for 260 weeks, or $32,500. If the creditors accept your proposals, they also appoint us with the management of your debt contract and accept that we can keep part of the repayment for the contract management work. The amount we withdraw will be deducted from the $32,500 and it is not an additional amount or extra you pay. If you are unable to meet your debts, you may want to consider bankruptcy or an alternative to bankruptcy called the “debt agreement.” These are formal legal options that are available under the Bankruptcy Act 1966.
The eligibility criteria for entering into a debt contract are: Resolvr has an obligation to help Australians manage their debts every day, and it is important for us not to put you in a worse financial situation by accumulating debts. Therefore, we do not charge a pre-payment fee for our services. There are eligibility requirements that must be met in order for the proposed debt agreement to be adopted. After submitting your proposal to AFSA, the official recipient will evaluate the proposal and verify that it meets these requirements. If the proposal is considered non-compliant with these requirements or is not in the interests of creditors, it may be rejected by AFSA. A Part 9 debt contract can be the first step to rebuilding your financial life. Understanding and respecting the terms of the agreement is essential. The first relevant date is the processing date, the date on which AFSA accepts your debt contract for processing and sends it to the creditors who will be put to the vote. 35 days from that date or 42 days, when the proposed debt contract is processed in December, is the last day of the vote. This date is called the deadline.
If you are in a debt contract, you do not have access to credit and therefore you must learn to live from what you earn. The reason most people go into debt is that they spend more than they earn. Credit is not your money — it is money that they borrowed and they have to pay back. Not spending more than you deserve is the basis of financial discipline that can lead to wealth creation. If you apply financial discipline and enter into your debt contract, you can apply the same discipline to create wealth. We are happy to confirm that you qualify.
