AFSA Bankruptcy Search

To check if an individual has been bankrupt, we provide access to the Australian Financial Security Authority (AFSA), Bankruptcy Registry, formerly known as ITSA.

By simply entering the person’s full name and gender we will conduct the AFSA Bankruptcy Registry Search across the National Personal Insolvency Index (NPII). The NPII is maintained and updated by AFSA and contains over 500,000 records dating back to August 1928, that have been recorded against individuals by Australian State and Federal Courts.

Using InfoTrack for your AFSA Bankruptcy Registry Search gives you the ability to browse through the list and order a full NPII Search.
