An AFSA Bankruptcy Check is a search of the National Personal Insolvency Index (NPII), a database of over 500,000 records. The search provides details on bankruptcies recorded against individuals by Australian state and federal courts.
The NPII is the permanent public record of personal insolvency proceedings in Australia. It is maintained and updated by Australian Financial Security Authority (AFSA) and contains records since August 1928.
You can find more information about NPII at the link below:
AFSA searches can only be conducted on People.
An AFSA Bankruptcy search will return a “Match” or “No Match” result based on your search criteria. An AFSA search cost is chargeable regardless of the result.
If there is "No match found" for your search or if the AFSA match provided is not the person for which you are seeking a report, click the “No Match” button. This will add an icon representing your search has been undertaken.
For when there is no match, the AFSA report in the Documents view will show a message as follows "NO MATCHES were returned by AFSA for the above individual when searching the National Personal Insolvency Index, based on the criteria you have specified."
This provides you with a useful visual record of the date that you completed the search, the result obtained and the cost incurred.
