What is an IVA?

Put simply, an IVA is a legal procedure which was introduced for people in financial difficulty who have unsecured debts and are unable to make the contractual monthly payments. An IVA typically lasts five years and you pay what is affordable on a monthly basis (can be weekly or four weekly) and thereafter any remaining unsecured debt is written off. 

Considerations for the self employed

IVA’s were originally introduced to help the self-employed avoid bankruptcy and continue trading and so they are an ideal debt solution for the self-employed.  It is a completely different to bankruptcy and is geared towards allowing you to continue to trade.

Considerations for homeowners

An IVA is an alternative to bankruptcy, which if accepted can safeguard your property from your unsecured creditors trying to put charges on your property which could ultimately lead to repossession  There are agreed rules regarding your property in an IVA which may result in your IVA being extended by 12 months to six years rather than five years.

Why use an Insolvency Practitioner?

An Insolvency Practitioner is highly qualified and regulated and generally does not charge up-front fees which should give you the peace of mind to accept their advice.  Only a licensed Insolvency Practitioner (IP) can take IVA appointments and become the Supervisor of an IVA and generally, if someone is not a licensed IP, they must be regulated by the FCA to give you insolvency advice.
