The No Asset Procedure (NAP) and your assetsUp one level
You can’t enter a NAP if you have realisable assets – things that can be sold to help repay your debt.
While you’re in the NAP, you can keep:
- Tools needed for your work (up to a certain value)
- Necessary household furniture and effects (up to a certain value)
- Motor vehicle worth up to $5,000
- In most cases you will be able to keep your KiwiSaver funds.
You must tell the Official Assignee about all your assets.
If you are applying for a NAP and have a KiwiSaver account or superannuation policy you may be asked to provide a letter from your provider confirming that no funds are available to you under their hardship provisions. It is expected that you will take a contributions holiday and not make any payments into your KiwiSaver or superannuation fund while you are in the NAP.
