Uniform Final Reports

Section 602 of the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005, codified at 28 U.S.C. § 589b, required the Attorney General to issue uniform forms for final reports by trustees under chapters 7, 12, and 13 of the Bankruptcy Code (uniform forms). The uniform forms were developed through the Federal Rulemaking process, and the initial forms took effect on April 1, 2009. Based on comments from users, modifications have been made to the forms.The modified uniform forms take effect on October 1, 2010.

Uniform Final Reports Documents

Trustee Final Report Generation System (TFRGS)

To assist those chapter 7, 12, and 13 trustees who do not have access to software that will produce the required data-enabled final report forms, the United States Trustee Program (USTP) developed the Trustee Final Report Generation System (TFRGS).  TFRGS is an application that contains fillable PDF versions of each of the seven applicable uniform final report forms. Using Adobe Reader, trustees can download these forms from the USTP Web site, enter the required data, save the files to their workstations, and then upload them to the bankruptcy courts as data-enabled PDF files.

These data-enabled Uniform Final Report Documents, the Instructions for generating the uniform trustee final reports, the minimum technical requirements for using TFRGS, and information on how to obtain assistance is available through the “TFRGS Home” page.
