An IVA may not be suitable in all circumstances. Fees may apply. Entering into an IVA will affect your credit rating. You could write off up to 80% of your debts upon successful completion of an IVA.(10% of our customers wrote off 80% in the last 12 months, with a typical figure of 25%-75%).

See if you are eligible

There are many factors at play in the credit rating you have. Lenders want to see that you have repaid any previous debts, you’re able to pay new ones, and various credit accounts have been consolidated. Bankruptcy, for instance, can have a negative impact on your credit score for several years. Other types of insolvency (such as Individual Voluntary Agreements) may also have the same effect. You can also be turned down for a loan application due to your electoral status, failure to register bills at a UK address, or using several credit cards.

Does a credit check impact your score?

Repeated applications for unapproved loans are a sign that your finances aren’t as healthy as they could be. Whenever a lender performs a credit check and turns you down, the score is lowered. That’s why it’s vital to know what your status is before making the application in the first place.
