Bankruptcy and The Gazette
Details of all bankruptcies in the UK are also published in The Gazette. This is an official ‘newspaper of record’ that lists official notices. This information is available for free on the Gazette website.
All bankruptcies in the UK are also advertised in the paper version of The Gazette. Three versions of this are printed weekly, in London, Edinburgh and Belfast.
The paper shows the same information available online and looks like this.
The Gazette shows the same details as the Insolvency Register, and you can request that your address is hidden if this would put your personal safety at risk.
If bankruptcy is the most suitable debt solution for you don’t let the Gazette listing put you off.
You can’t prevent your details appearing in the Gazette and it’ll remain in their records permanently. It’s unlikely that anyone you know would find this information by mistake, and creditors don’t refer to this information when making decisions about lending to you in the future.
