Insolvency Apply for NAP
A No Asset Procedure (NAP) is probably the best insolvency option for you if you owe less than $47,000, have no assets and have no extra money to make repayments on your debt.

What is it?
A No Asset Procedure (NAP) is a way to clear your debts if you have no way of paying them. It doesn’t have as many restrictions as bankruptcy, but it will have an impact on your credit rating and possibly your employment prospects.
A NAP usually lasts for one year. When you enter the NAP your debts are cleared. Your creditors (the people or organisations you owe money to) don’t get paid anything.
Who it’s for?
To enter a NAP you must owe between $1,000 and $47,000 in total. This can include secured debts like a couch you have on hire purchase, but it doesn’t include student loans, court fines or reparations.
You must have no way to pay any of your debt, and nothing that you can sell to help make payments, including money in a bank or other fund. Note however that KiwiSaver funds are protected in insolvency however once you are eligible to withdraw them, they can be included.
