Q: How much does bankruptcy cost?
A: Trustee fees, filing fees, and counselling fees are regulated by the government. The Trustee is usually paid out of the funds from the liquidation of your assets. If you have no assets available, you must make a monthly payments to pay the Trustee’s fees and disbursements. In the simplest cases, and if you have not been bankrupt before, this amounts to about $1,420 plus counselling costs and GST (roughly $1,800 in total). Hardie & Kelly Inc. offers payment plans that allow you to make payments over a period of time.
