Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. This is an email service so there may be delays when responding.

Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 8 days ago.

Its until you are discharged.

But usually, you are discharged after 12 months.

Being made bankrupt has to happen in court. There is always a hearing.

If your accountant has been negligent you may have a claim against the firm
