IVA Advice

An IVA (individual voluntary arrangement) is an alternative to bankruptcy introduced by the government as part of the Insolvency Act 1986. This article provides an overview of IVAs and suggests what readers should watch out for when looking for IVA advice.

What Is An IVA

An IVA is an alternative to bankruptcy introduced by the Insolvency Act of 1986. It enables individuals facing serious debt problems to make a proposal to their creditors to reach a settlement. If the proposal is approved by a majority of the creditors, then the IVA acts as a contract that binds all parties and prevents any further action. A standard IVA will offer to pay whatever the debtor can afford each month into a fund over a five year period, until the debt is cleared. With an IVA:

  • Interest on the loan is frozen
  • Legal proceedings are stopped
  • The overall debt is reduced

Why Is It Important To Get Good IVA Advice

When considering an IVA it's vital to get the best advice possible, and to work with an organisation that is both professional and independent. By getting unbiased advice you can be sure that you are making the right decisions and can be confident about the choices that you make. Good IVA advice is also important because signing up to an IVA can involve a commitment of up to five years, so it's important that you understand what you're getting into.

What To Watch Out For When Looking For IVA Advice

There are some companies who may try to convince you to sign up to an IVA even if it's not appropriate for you. Furthermore, some organisations offer IVA services but because they don't specialise in them, they may not actually be the best people to take advice from.

What You Should Check For When Looking For IVA Advice

  • That the IVA advice you're being offered is impartial
  • IVA Advice should take into account the perspectives of both the debtor and the creditors.
  • IVA advice should be compliant with appropriate licensing and regulation
  • Advisors should have IVA and debt management experience
  • All IVA advice and supervision processes and systems should be defined and governed by experienced professionals.
