The aim of this study is to the effectiveness of prediction models adjusting for foreign bankruptcy to bankruptcy prediction organizations in Iran. This study is applied and descriptive in nature of the relatives who would try to model bankruptcy, through models, model risk In their book, Dan and Broadstreet use the term ”failure” to refer to companies that are shutting down due to divestiture or bankruptcy, or abandoning loss-making business activities, or which are subject to change. Are legal by law. But in general, when a company's active business fails demands (demands) creditors to satisfy, as the company failed to consider and if the debtor fails with its creditors to somehow reach an agreement should be based on the provisions of the Code of bankruptcy petition economy.
