It was a pleasure to assist you through the bankruptcy process.
Even though you are discharged, the record will remain on your credit file for 5 more years. There are certain things you can do it improve your credit rating
, but it wont be 100% until the record comes off your file.
In regards to old paperwork such as vehicle finance agreements, you don't need to keep this. All unsecured creditors (or creditors who became unsecured) on the date of your bankruptcy are included. As such if an old creditor were to contact you in the future, all you need is a copy of your bankruptcy order and you will be covered.
That said, if you want to take a prudent approach, it does no harm to keep hold of old paperwork in case you want to refer back to it. I suggest holding on to it for 6 years from the day of your bankruptcy.
