Hi Advice please.

I'm applying for a new job , the employer has pre employment screening... and the dreaded question is there.... have i EVER had bankruptcy/iva etc..... ?
I am clear now 6 years since agreement - nothing showing on insolvency register or the main credit agencies.... What do i say? This is a fairly senior role and i fear for my chances if i declare it ......
Thought i was done with all this

Thanks

The problem is with that word "ever" --- the answer is, of course, yes ! As you say, it does not show on the credit files or register -- but I am sceptical about archived records lurking somewhere !!

First your own moral compass will decide whether you say yes or no -- then it will fall to whether they already know themselves and what they think if the answers conflict.
