  • How can an IVA help with your debts?

    Individual Voluntary Arrangements (IVA’s) were introduced by the Government in the 1986 Insolvency Act as an alternative to bankruptcy. An IVA is a formal agreement between you and your creditors that is designed to help you manage your debts.

    A licensed Insolvency Practitioner will negotiate with your creditors and agree what you can realistically afford to repay. An IVA will usually last for five or six years, during which time you will pay an agreed, lower amount every month which is split between your creditors and your remaining unsecured debt will be written off - this can be as much as 80%* of your debts.

    *On average customers may have between 25% to 80% of debt written off with an Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA).

  • The benefits of an IVA are:

    • Avoid bankruptcy
    • Become debt free in 5 years
    • Reduce your monthly payments
    • Write off debts
    • Reduce creditor phone calls and letters

  • Lower your monthly payments
  • The Process

    Our experienced advisors will look at your financial situation with you and work out, based on your monthly income, what you can realistically afford to pay towards an IVA.

    A proposal will then be prepared for your lenders. This will include:

    • Details of your finances
    • The terms of the proposed IVA
    • Reasons why they should agree to your IVA

    Your proposal will then go through the following process:

    • Your lenders will vote on whether to accept the proposal (in most cases they will)
    • Once accepted, the IVA will be legally binding for you and your creditors
    • You’ll start making your monthly payments for the agreed term (usually 5 years)
    • After your last payment, any outstanding debt included in the IVA (including interest and charges), will be written off
  • Advantages

    • Make one affordable monthly payment, based on your circumstances
    • Protect your home and assets
    • Upon completion all debts included in the IVA are written off
    • Freeze interest and charges
    • Your lenders cannot chase you for payment or take legal action
  • Important Considerations

    • Your lenders are not obliged to accept the IVA
    • Your credit rating may be affected for up to 6 years
    • If the IVA fails it could lead to bankruptcy
    • You will be placed on the public insolvency register
    • Any debts not bound by your IVA will remain outstanding.
    • An IVA can impact on certain jobs such as those in finance and the Civil Service. If you are unsure check your employment contract.
    • You may be asked to re-mortgage 54 months into the IVA; if this is not possible you may be required to extend your IVA by a further 12 months.
    • There are restrictions on certain items of expenditure for a person in an IVA.
