Bankruptcy and Income

Many people think and are told that if they go bankrupt they will lose part of their income. This is not always true. There is a protected amount, which is always the bankrupts to keep. Currently this amount is $1,322.00 after tax per week for a person with no dependants.

The more dependants the higher the protected amount.

Here are the protected amounts. They are all after tax.

3                        $1,745
4                        $1,772
over 4               $1,798

If you get paid fortnightly double the above amounts.

If you get paid monthly multiply the above amounts by 4.3

They are all after tax amounts.
