What is Bankruptcy in Singapore?

Bankruptcy is a debt relief option for persons who are insolvent or unable to pay their creditors when their payments are due or whose total debts exceed the value of their assets.

When you declare yourself bankrupt, you are admitting that you are unable to repay your debts and entrusting the repayment of your debts to a Trustee or Official Assignee.


Any Singaporean or Permanent Resident (PR) who is unable to repay their debts has the option of filing for Bankruptcy. Still, this option should always be considered in conjunction with all other available debt solutions.

In some cases, a creditor can petition for a debtor to be declared bankrupt if the debtor owes them at least $15,000 in unsecured debts.

If you are worried about:

missed payments, other financial difficulties, you or your creditors are about to proceed with Bankruptcy.

What impact will Bankruptcy have on me?

You are no longer liable for any outstanding debts listed in the bankruptcy proceedings once you are declared bankrupt. This can provide you with peace of mind, relieve stress, and allow you to make a fresh start.

Stigma as a Bankrupt

Bankruptcy has always had a stigma attached to it, and it has always been regarded as a big no-no or something that should be avoided at all costs. However, with more and more people experiencing debt problems in recent years, it has become increasingly acceptable for someone to declare Bankruptcy.

Unemployed for more than six months.

Bankruptcy may not be best for you if:

Your assets, such as your property and valuables, could pay off your debts.

It may have an impact on your employment – Bankruptcy prevents some professionals from working, such as those in the financial, government, casino, legal and insurance sectors.
