There are certain types of debt that will survive the corporate structure regardless of whether a bankruptcy is filed or not. The major ones you have to be concered with are:

a) personal guarantee’s;

b) GST; and

c) payroll remittances.

If you have any of these types of debt as director you are responsible and therefore they will not be released by the filing of a corporate bankruptcy.
