If you apply for your own bankruptcy, you’ll need to pay £680 to cover:
▪️£130 adjudicator fee
▪️£550 to the official receiver managing the bankruptcy.
You can pay in instalments, but you’ll need to pay the whole amount before you submit your bankruptcy application.
If your debts are below £20,000 you may qualify for a DRO (Debt Relief Order) which, with a one-off payment of only £90, will clear all your debts. To see if you qualify try our Debt Relief Calculator.
Paying Your Bankruptcy Fees
You can pay online when you apply for bankruptcy. If you pay online, you can choose to pay in instalments. The minimum payment amount is £5 and you can pay in as many instalments as you need.
You can pay by cash at any Royal Bank of Scotland branch. If you pay by cash, you can’t pay in instalments – so you’ll need to pay the full £680.
