WHAT DOES BANKRUPTCY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

bankruptcy

Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy is a legal status of a person or other entity that cannot repay the debts it owes to creditors. In most jurisdictions, bankruptcy is imposed by a court order, often initiated by the debtor. Bankruptcy is not the only legal status that an insolvent person or other entity may have, and the term bankruptcy is therefore not a synonym for insolvency. In some countries, including the United Kingdom, bankruptcy is limited to individuals, and other forms of insolvency proceedings are applied to companies. In the United States, bankruptcy is applied more broadly to formal insolvency proceedings.

Definition of bankruptcy in the English dictionary

The definition of bankruptcy in the dictionary is the state, condition, or quality of being or becoming bankrupt.
