Debt Recovery Companies Winding Up Legal Firm

ACC-BankruptcyActSome creditors face a dilemma, shall we file a bill of costs after the debtors have been made a bankrupt?

A quick answer: in the absence of a bill of costs, the costs that were incurred for the filing of the bankruptcy application cannot be recovered, even if there are any assets in the estate of the bankrupt.

Unless you are certain that there are some assets belonging to the bankrupt that will be distributed by the Official Assignee,  otherwise we suggest not to proceed with the filing of a  Bill of Costs which will incur further legal fees.
