The basic answer is that when it concerns Filing For Bankruptcy most debts are wiped, and I have included a chart below for you to look at.

But, put simply some of the exceptions are Centrelink Debts, Child Support, Court fines (like speeding fines) and even any debts arising from uninsured Motor-vehicle claims and educational debts including HECS or FEE-HELP. These debts are not erased when you file for bankruptcy.

What about Secured Debts?

A secured debt is a vehicle loan or a home loan; it is a debt that has some absolute security attached to it. So for instance if you buy a new car for $40,000 dollars the security for that car is the actual car itself.

So, can my secured debts be cleared away if I file for bankruptcy?

Yes. If you have a car loan for $40,000 you can have that debt erased if you simply hand back the car. So the lesson is that you cannot have your cake and eat it too (so to speak), so yes all of your secured debts might be wiped but the asset will need to be sold or returned. This is just one part that, when it comes to Filing For Bankruptcy, it is important to get professional guidance – like that offered at Bankruptcy Experts Sydney.

What about my Tax Debts with the ATO can they be eliminated If I go bankrupt?
