What is an IVA?

Depending on your circumstances you might be eligible to take out a Government approved scheme for reducing your monthly debt payments and writing off up to 90% of your debts at the end of the scheme. Your creditors have to agree and you must have more than £6000 of debt and enough income to be able to meet your new agreed payment. Read our guide to IVA’s for more details

Is an IVA worth it?

That’s going to depend on your individual circumstances and whether or not the various pro’s and con’s of an IVA are worth it for you. For most people who simply cannot carry on with debt that has become unmanageable, being able to reduce payments down to an agreed fixed amount that you can certainly afford, and at the end of the fixed period having the bulk of your debts written off is certainly worth it. However, careful consideration needs to be given to other solutions such as Bankruptcy, Debt Management Plans or Debt consolidation loans or mortgages. Everyone is different so you must put yourself and your needs first.

How does an IVA work?

An Individual Voluntary Arrangement, or IVA, is a formal, legally binding debt solution, which is a form of insolvency. It must be administered by a licensed Insolvency Practitioner. As an alternative to becoming Bankrupt, It allows you to potentially write-off up to 90% of your existing debts, based on what you can reasonably afford to repay. The exact amount will vary depending on your personal circumstances, and who you choose to arrange your IVA.
An IVA commits you to monthly repayments over 5 or 6 years, which are distributed among your creditors. Any debts remaining after this period will then be written off. The payments will take into account your monthly income to ensure that the IVA is realistic and affordable.

WHY PAY MORE?

26 years & 8 months, that’s how long it will take someone to pay off the average UK credit card debt, just on minimum payments.

If you are drowning in debt and are being forced to choose debt payments over food, clothes or rent, it’s time to take back control of your life and your money.

Put yourself first, get back in control of your finances.
