IVA costs

If you are buried in debt and struggling to keep up with your repayments, an IVA could be an option to write off a substantial portion of your debt.

There are 2 fees payable to an Insolvency Practitioner for the work involved in an IVA. The first fee is the fee charged by the Insolvency Practitioner for setting up the IVA – known as the ‘Nominee’s fee’ and the second fee is the fee charged by the Insolvency Practitioner for administering the IVA typically for a period of 5 years. This fee is known as the ‘Supervisor’s fee’. An example of the fees and how they are charged is set out below. The fees will be fully explained to you before you proceed with your IVA and they will also be disclosed in your IVA proposal which is sent to your creditors.

The important point to note about the fees and costs of an IVA is that the costs are deducted from your agreed affordable monthly payments. In the example below, you will see that no fees or costs will be payable by you in addition to your agreed monthly IVA contributions.
