    Discharge 9th Oct 17 at 10:51 AM
    I appreciate this question has probably been asked a million times on this forum but here goes anyway
    What is the best way to find out whether you have been automatically been discharged-does the IS website update on the day, are there any other options, without calling the OR, which I am a bit superstitious about! - I am 8 days out now, squeaky bum time!

    I will prob have lots of post-discharge questions too-one thing at a time though

    The insolvency register will show for 3 months after discharge and you can ask for a certificate of discharge from the court if you did it through there, I've included some info from the CAB website

    To get proof of your date of discharge, you can: email discharge queries for a free confirmation letter or call them on 0300 678 0015 if you can't email. ask the court that dealt with your bankruptcy for a Certificate of Discharge (this costs £70 and then £10 for extra copies)

    Thanks - so what is the best way to find out, on the day, that you have been discharged?
    For peace of mind and formal commencement of celebrations. I guess that's what i'm asking!

    I know you don't want to but contact the insolvency service is the only definite way. But its 12 months from when the adjudicator made you BR. So you should be discharged now. Congratulations!

    Email discharge.queries@insolvency.gsi.gov.uk if you want to confirm it and get a confirmation letter.

    Go to the IS register on the day of your discharge and click on your name. it will show your "status" there is no need to contact the OR if you don`t want to. Then print out a few copies of the screen, this is what I did and I used these as proof of discharge to creditors.

    Thanks both, bit confused by this? my discharge date is set for the 17th, a year after the order was made-that's correct right, so no premature celebrations?

    It is one year from your B.R date to your automatic discharge.

    Haha-thanks for remembering-you legend

    YES IT HAPPENED! checked the IS register at about 6am and then thought sod it and called the OR too-so its over, strange feeling-not as elated as I thought I would be, odd sensation of being back 'out there' and 'what to do next' -(easy to use BR as an excuse to take stock, think about the future and so on-which I certainly have, no excuses now, got to get on with it!)

    but yes mostly very relieved-going to let it settle for a few days then will probably be back on with a raft of annoying post-BR questions for this fine forum

    Thanks again!
