More details about an IVA

An IVA is a legal agreement between you and your creditors. It is established and overseen by a Licensed Insolvency Practitioner, who acts as the mediator between you and your creditors. The exact amount of your monthly payment will depend on your circumstances but can start from as low as £70. If you are a homeowner, once your IVA is approved your home is protected. If you have a private pension this will also be protected.

It is realistic to expect to write off between 25% and 75% of your debts in an IVA. The debt write off amount will depend on your circumstances and is subject to your creditors approving your proposal. Your monthly IVA payments may be different to the example as they will be based on your personal circumstances. All fees and costs of your IVA which will be paid from your monthly IVA payments will be clearly explained to you.

Typically an IVA will last for 5 years with you making an affordable monthly payment from your income into your IVA. Once your IVA has been approved, you don’t need to worry any more about your creditors contacting you.

Your insolvency practitioner who supervises your IVA will deal with all your creditors. Once the final IVA payment is made, you are no longer liable for any of the debts included in your IVA and there will be no further balance to pay, even if this means your debts have not been repaid in full.

To be eligible for an IVA, you need to show that you do not have enough money to pay your debts in a reasonable amount of time. In most cases, your debts must be more than your assets, including any property you own. You also need to have some surplus income each month after paying for your living costs. When you talk to Bennett Jones about an IVA or other debt solutions, we make sure that you are aware of all the possible solutions for your situation. You will be able to make the best choice for your circumstances. If you decide an IVA is right for you, we will support you on your journey to financial health.

We understand how difficult it is to cope with unmanageable debts and the stress and worry this causes. Bennett Jones is here to help you explore all the options for you to regain control of your finances and become debt-free.

To qualify for an IVA, you need to be a resident of England, Wales or Northern Ireland. You will also need to have a minimum debt level of £6,000. You must owe money to at least 2 companies. You will need to have some surplus income after paying your living expenses so that you can afford to make payments into your IVA.

All IVAs must be arranged through a licenced insolvency practitioner and that is where Bennett Jones steps in. If you qualify for an IVA, you could be on your way to writing off your seemingly unaffordable debts, setting you up for a debt-free future.

IVA is short for Individual Voluntary Arrangement and DMP is short for Debt Management Plan. IVAs allow you to write off a large proportion of your debt and they are legally binding on your creditors. A DMP is not legally binding – it is simply an informal agreement between you and some or all of your creditors. This means that if you are in a DMP your creditors can still take legal action against you and continue to contact you directly.

In England and Wales, an Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA) is a formal alternative for individuals wishing to avoid bankruptcy. In Scotland, the equivalent debt solution is known as a Protected Trust Deed.

Once an IVA is agreed upon, creditors are forbidden from contacting you directly to attempt to obtain funds. Whilst they usually receive a larger payment than they would with bankruptcy, you benefit from frozen interest/fees and manageable payment structures. What is more, with an IVA, you only pay what you can afford, even if this means you do not pay your debts in full.
