Bankruptcy Search Overseas

Are you administrating an estate, which requires you to pay out funds to a beneficiary who currently lives or has previously lived overseas?

If so as part of your due diligence checks you are required to carry out bankruptcy searches on those individuals to ensure that they have not been declared bankrupt overseas and may possibly owe their entitlement to another party as part of a debt owed.

Overseas Bankruptcy Search

At IWC we offer overseas Bankruptcy searches for most countries around the world at very competitive rates with discounts for four or more searches in one order, there is a search fee, typically this could be a Court related fee or a record search fee, on top of our fee. The search fee varies depending on the country involved, this can vary wildly and generally ranges from £20 for countries like the USA to £110 for somewehere like Germany. The timescales also varies from country to country some results are provided within 24 hours whilst over can take up to 17 days.

Why carry out a bankruptcy search overseas

If a beneficiary to an estate is made bankrupt then they are not entitled to inherit without first ensuring the bankruptcy is discharged. Thus the bankruptcy court or debtor would be entitled to any moneys that specific beneficiary would be due to receive. As Executors or Administrators to an estate you have a responsibility to ensure you can pay the person without fear of repercussion.
