Will My Bankruptcy Show Up on a Background Check?

A lot of people worry that if they file for bankruptcy in Arizona, they won’t ever be able to get credit again. They know that bankruptcy can stay on their credit report for a long time, and that can make them seem like poor candidates for credit with future lenders.

What many people don’t realize, however, is that bankruptcy can also be an impediment to getting future jobs. Many employers run a comprehensive background check on prospective employees, which includes a criminal history, a credit check, and a public records check, and bankruptcy is included on the latter two. A bankruptcy filing can give employers pause, indicating that you may not be a person who makes good decisions or who is responsible.

In this CFO series post we provide some thoughts for companies facing a cash shortage and how it can potentially be dealt with.

Symptoms and Plugging the Leak

A cash shortage is frequently a symptom of one or more larger problems. The list of such causal problems is long, and includes (i) failed acquisitions and other initiatives, (ii) declining operations, (iii) inadequate capitalization, and (iv) management errors. Failure to solve the cash shortage may easily result in corporate demise.

In our view, solving this issue requires both coming up with the additional liquidity and taking steps to prevent the rescue cash from leaking away. Without dealing with both pieces of the puzzle, the problem will likely recur. Moreover, without the “leak” addressed, would-be providers of rescue cash may shy away from the situation until they are comfortable that the company – and its cash self-sufficiency – are stabilized.

Many people considering bankruptcy are concerned about their options for purchasing a home after bankruptcy. In many ways, qualifying for a loan after bankruptcy is no different from qualifying for a mortgage without a history of bankruptcy. That is, the lender’s determination will be based on the same set of factors, such as the amount of the loan in comparison to your disposable income and your credit history.

Of course, bankruptcy is a negative entry on your credit report. However, bankruptcy is just one type of credit reporting black mark. Chances are good that if you are considering bankruptcy, you already have some negative entries on your credit report. And, if your financial circumstances are not resolved, it is likely that you will continue to post late payments, high balances, collection accounts, and other negatives.

On the other hand, data suggests that many people see a significant increase in credit scores shortly after bankruptcy. In fact, one study revealed that mean credit scores after Chapter 7 bankruptcy were more than 80 points higher than the mean prior to filing. The mean Chapter 13 score increased by 75 points.
