By The Insolvency Service
• answers the questions you are most likely to ask about how to make someone who owes you money bankrupt;
• explains what happens after the bankruptcy order is made.
If you want to make yourself bankrupt, please read our publication 'Dealing with debt - How to petition for your own bankruptcy.' If a company, rather than an individual, owes you money, please read our publication 'Dealing with debt - How to wind up a company that owes you money'.
This is only a guide, so you may also want to read the relevant legislation in the Insolvency Act 1986 and the Insolvency Rules 1986 as amended.
