What Is An IVA?

An IVA (Individual Voluntary Arrangement) is a formal and legally binding agreement made between you and your creditors. An IVA helps you to pay off your debts on a monthly basis, over a specified period, and, as it is approved by the court, your creditors have to stick to it.

You must set up an IVA through an insolvency practitioner. An insolvency practitioner will work out both how much you can afford to pay, and how long the IVA will run for. They will also contact your creditors to get their agreement to the IVA. For the IVA to start, at least 75% of your creditors will need to agree. However if this threshold is met the IVA will apply to all creditors, even those that disagreed.

Fees are applied by your insolvency practitioner. There are generally 2 types of fees - a set up fee and a handling fee for each payment made - but these are usually added to your monthly payments. You shouldn’t have to pay anything upfront.

If you are in Scotland, there is a similar system, known as Trust Deeds.

You can pay off a number of different types of debts via an IVA including personal loans, overdrafts, credit card debts and even money owed to HMRC. You won’t however be able to use an IVA to pay off magistrate court fines, some types of car finance, student loans or child support/maintenance arrears. It is possible to include mortgage or rent arrears in an IVA but often creditors won’t agree to this.
