If you’re in arrears with your debts, you may be worried that other people will find out. This may include family, friends or people you work with.
Details of your debts are confidential between you and your creditors. They can’t discuss your situation with anyone else without your permission.
However, some information relating to court action or insolvency is public, and in theory it could be seen by anyone. In practice, it’s unlikely anyone you know would come across this sort of information by accident.
