IVA is short for Individual Voluntary Arrangement by the very nature of its name a Proposal of repayment to debts you cant afford to repay and is completely unique to each individual or joint applicants circumstances.

To help give you an idea of the different ways an IVA can help individual situations, we have outlined 2 main types of IVA Proposals suitable for both Individual and Joint arrangements.
This is the most common of IVA proposals and suitable for people who have a sustainable repayment from their income each month to offer creditors. These are usually proposed over a period of usually 60 months and set out an affordable monthly payment to your debt, which is agreed with you using recognised guidelines for essential living expenses as well as accounting for all of your household bills before any offer of payment is reached.
It is possible to proposal cases under 60 months if you forsee a significant change in circumstances within the next 5 years, that would make you unable to maintain a payment to creditors. (For example: you are due to retire from work and anticipate a significant reduction in your income as you lose your salary and receive state pension). These proposals are more unusual and reviewed on a case by case basis.

These proposals are suitable for people that have very little to offer creditors from their income after all essential living costs are accounted for and would find it difficult therefore, to maintain monthly payments for any length of time but have a lump sum to offer their creditors from savings, sale of an asset or even a gift from a relative or friend. The amount that would be acceptable to creditors is dependent on your individual circumstances and would need to be considered on a case by case basis. But essentially, if it is the best you can offer and results in a fair return to creditors compared with alternatives it is likely to be accepted.

" I really don’t know what I would have done without the IVA. I was recommended by my brother’s friend back in 2008 who was in a similar situation. Definitely the right thing for me to do. I am now building up my credit status so I can hopefully obtain a mortgage in the future. I am more careful with money / finances now and don’t take credit for granted! Thanks very much for everything the team has done for me!"Read More
