An IVA is a popular solution to help people struggling with unmanageable debts ease the pressure of dealing with the companies they owe and regaining control. Put simply it is a proposal of payment to your debts based on what you can realistically afford to pay over usually just 60 months. It allows you to put forward a fair and equal offer of repayment to your debts were there is no ability for you to repay them in full within a reasonable time (usually considered to be 5 years). It freezes interest and charges to ensure your debt cannot increase and protects you and your essential assets such as your home or car against any further collections activity by your debts.
You are basically explaining to your creditors that you want to repay them but you can’t afford to make the full monthly payments and asking them to freeze interest and charges so that you can pay as much as you can afford over a fixed term and requesting that they write off the debt you cant afford to repay.
Debt write off can be as much as 80% depending on individual circumstances
