If you are struggling to repay debt because you’re on a low income and have few assets to sell, the Minimal Asset Process (MAP) may provide a way out of this worrying situation. MAP allows you to claim sequestration, or bankruptcy; it can relieve huge financial pressure and allow you to start again.
Other forms of debt relief rely on your ability to make monthly payments, or sell assets to repay creditors, but the Minimal Asset Process could allow you to be free of unsecured debt within six months.
Your money advisor will need to assess your income and expenditure to determine eligibility for MAP. If there is no surplus income after essential payments have been made, or you have received certain benefits for the last six months, you may be able to make an application.
Should your circumstances change for the better after you enter the Minimal Asset Process, you’ll need to revert to standard sequestration which will involve a further fee, and regular payments towards your debt.
