(b) where the subsection (1DA) or (1DB) applies —5 years from the date the agreement was reached. (1DA) This subsection applies where subsection 185C (2AB) applies to the debtor at the time of initiation of the contract proposal debts to the official beneficiary.

A debt contract is a proposal from a debtor to its creditors to repay its debts at an interest rate they can afford in their circumstances. A debt contract accepted by creditors is a legally binding agreement between a debtor and his creditors. Debt agreements are a flexible alternative to bankruptcy.
Although the conclusion of a debt contract is a bankruptcy law, the debtor is not recognized as a liquidator. However, most bankruptcy restrictions do not apply to people entering into a debt contract. If you make all refunds under the contract, you will be exempt from the other ingredients of the contract. If you do not reach the end of the agreement, the agreement will be concluded and the creditors will again make all the fault, plus all the interest that has been incurred in the meantime. It is quite common for debtors to be forced to stop paying their creditors and pay pre-feeding costs. Keep in mind that there is no guarantee that your creditors will say yes to the proposed debt agreements, and if you stop paying, you may find yourself in a less favourable position. As a general rule, you will not be offered a refund of the administration fees paid if the proposal is rejected. Note: Section 185H discusses when a debt agreement is reached. The advance fees charged by administrators can vary considerably (from about $200 to more than $2000!). Then do your shopping.

She had only two years to make her personal loan when she first registered.
Six months later, she became pregnant and was unable to pay at all. After another six months, the debt contract was terminated, and all their creditors are once again reducing the debt and interest. Since a significant portion of her repayments were used to cover the costs of managing the agreement, she is in a worse situation than ever!
