Is there any difference in usage or are they pretty much interchangeable?

1 Answer 1


倒産 means "to go bankrupt", that is they can't keep the company in existence because of the company's debts.

If a company go bankrupt, there are three ways that the company's creditors can deal with the company after that.

One of them is 破産. A bankrupt company's all assets are exchanged to money and they are divided among the company's creditors. And the company can't exist.
