What are the asset allowances in bankruptcy?

There are two main classes of assets that are protected in bankruptcy to an indexed threshold amount.

Tools of trade $4,200
Vehicles (cars/motorbikes) used mainly for transport $9,100

The amounts in the table above are updated each financial year.

There's also an amount of credit you can get from lenders without being required to disclose the bankruptcy or debt agreement (Part IX or Part 9). This amount is updated quarterly and is currently $6,717.00
