Thank you. There is just one further complication I am considering a move to Spain will that make it impossible for me to go bankrupt?

I would go bankrupt in the uk. If you do it in Spain it may affect your credit rating there.

Or rather what is the process

It’s all online. It goes before a judge. You are make bankrupt.

The official receiver gets in touch. You fill out some paperwork, have an interview and that is it.

Does that assist?

Hi do you have any idea of how long it will take please

To become bankrupt less than a month. OR To contact you may be a while.

If you move away in the meantime that is fine as long as you let them know.
