What are the restrictions of a Bankrupt?

I am about to file for bankruptcy but I've heard that there are certain restrictions once a person is declared bankrupt. I am curious about those restrictions and I want to find out more about them so that I could re-evaluate my current situation and think of alternative solutions before I file for bankrupptcy.

    If you are in debt and are having a hard time repaying your creditors then I suggest that voluntarily filing for bankruptcy is the better option. Though there are some restrictions, it wouldn't really affect your daily life and necessities. Once declared bankrupt you cannot be appointed as a trustee or personal representative in respect of any trust or estate, unless the court approves, commence legal action against another person without permission from the OA unless on the grounds of personal injury or divorce, leave Singapore without the OA's permission, borrow more that S$500 without informing the lender that you are bankrupt and participate in the management of business or acts as the director of a company without the permission of the OA or the High Court.

    CardUp charges you a transaction fee for each payment made.

    Every transaction you complete using CardUp will incur a 2.6% transaction fee. This can actually add up over time, especially if you’re relying heavily on CardUp. That being said, if your card offers cash rebates or frequent flyer miles, you may easily be able to offset the transaction fee. CardUp works by being a middleman in your transactions. Instead of directly transferring funds from your account to a vendor, you pay CardUp via credit card. CardUp will then transfer the funds to your designated vendor.

    Terrible customer service in Singapore.

    PayPal / PayPal

    This folks have a terrible customer service in Singapore. If you have a problem, then good luck trying to contact them. I requested for refund and stop any payment to a certain company because I did not receive the ordered items and there was no delivery schedule or whatsoever. The reply was really classic, "Thank you for reporting this case, after reviewing your case, we found that this transaction was not unauthorized and hence couldn't be covered under PayPal Purchase Protection" and just like that the case was closed.

    Awesome features and top-notch security measures

    Revolut / Revolut

    I like how you can transfer your cash out and it’s liquid and at the same time you can use it for overseas payments. Love the feature of the one- time destroyable card number to protect your wallets from fraudsters. Very simple and straightforward user interface. Topping up the account was easy using credit card and there were plenty of security tools that allows you to turn on & off real time to keep your account safe. Real time viewing of exchange rate in app is definitely a function that I love so that I can do the conversion real time to know how much I will be spending in local currency.
