Licensed Insolvency Help in Trois-Rivières

 

If you are worried about your surplus income being seized following a bankruptcy, then our Licensed Insolvency Trustee in Trois-Rivières QC, will explain the intricacies and expel your doubts.

 

The bankruptcy trustee will go through your monthly income and expenditure details to find out if you have any surplus income.

 

Surplus income is used by Canada’s bankruptcy law as a means to identify debtors belonging to a higher income group.

 

Surplus Income Requirement

 

Presence of surplus income indicates that the debtor can pay more toward debt settlement.

 

The OSB (government’s bankruptcy division) sets a standard for a bankrupt’s income.

 

If your income is more than the standard, then you have surplus income.

 

Usually 50% of your surplus income will have to be paid on a monthly basis during bankruptcy.

 

The standard limit for surplus income is revised on a yearly basis.

 

The standard is calculated based on not only your income but also the number of family members.

 

For example, the income standard stipulated for a family unit consisting of 2 members is currently $2, 793.

 

Presence of surplus income will also impact your discharge timing – the time by which you will be free of bankruptcy and your debts.

 

For example, if you are filing for bankruptcy for the first time, and you do not have any surplus income, then your discharge timing is 9 months from the day of filing.

 

In contrast, if you have surplus income, the timing is 21 months post filing.

 

The Licensed Insolvency Trustee of Trois-Rivières, QC, will take all the above factors into account while calculating your surplus income.

 

In addition, the trustee will also consider your expenses.

 

Some expenses such as medical and child care are considered “non-discretionary”, and can reduce your income calculation, which can bring your income below the surplus income threshold.

 

So, you may not have any surplus income to pay in the first place.

 

It is therefore important to disclose all your income and expenses to our trustee.

 

With accurate information, the trustee will be able to provide the best solution that will minimize your debt risks.
