Understand your bankruptcy restrictions order
How we help
The Trustee in bankruptcy may apply to the court for an order that restricts your activities for a specified period of time, which can be up to 15 years. An order of this kind is known as a bankruptcy restrictions order (BRO). It is a criminal offence to breach the BRO.
If you have been made the subject of a BRO, or your Trustee has indicated they will apply for such an order, please contact us for help and advice. We will negotiate with your Trustee to try and reduce the terms of the order, arrange for attendance at the BRO hearing, and tell you what steps you need to take to ensure that you are compliant if a BRO is made.
If you believe that you have unfairly been made the subject of a BRO, we will lodge an appeal on your behalf. If this happens to you, it’s important to contact us urgently, as the appeal must be made within 28 days of the BRO.
