DEFINITION OF BANKRUPTCY

Bankruptcy is another key area of accounting . The issues addressed here deal with the properties of an individual (a sole trader or partner in a partnership) when they become bankrupt. There is a lot of legal issues and most of these are addressed under the Bankruptcy Act. Please go through the notes patiently but emphasise more on the final accounts i.e. the statement of affairs and the deficiency account.
