This option is regularly in the news. Until recently it was a little known procedure but was actually introduced as part of the Insolvency Act 1986 as an alternative to Bankruptcy. Simply, an IVA is a private agreement between you and your Creditors to repay a percentage of your debt over an agreed term. The agreement is put together by a licenced Insolvency Practioner whom you nominate to act on your behalf. The document is ratified by the Court and circulated to your creditors.

An IVA does not convey the stigma that some associate with Bankruptcy mainly because information is not released into the public domain, meaning the impact on your reputation can be controlled. Essentially what makes this so attractive is that your affairs are kept private, you avoid Bankruptcy and once the terms are agreed the creditors can’t change their minds. In addition, interest is frozen and the outstanding debt at the end of an IVA is written off (up to 75% of your total debts).

So if your experiencing financial problems what should you do?
