IVA specialist

IVA Specialists

“IVA Specialists” have been around since 1986 when the Government introduced the IVA. Who are they? Essentially you have IVA companies and Insolvency Practitioners (IP’s) involved in an application process, and because IP’s are tightly regulated, they are IVA specialists.

The key areas of distinction between what you may in the wider sense call an IVA specialist are in these areas:

  • Does the IVA company show a bias towards IVA’s or are they solution neutral and only recommend an IVA when it is the best solution for the individual?
  • Does the IVA company charge upfront fees for making an IVA application?
  • What is the success rate of the company in getting IVA’s agreed by creditors?
  • What level of ongoing support is offered once an IVA is up an running?

To help you find a good IVA company we offer a free to use service that helps people get in touch with IVA specialists we know and trust via charity debt advisors. Give them a call as soon as you can. The call is confidential and will help you get the answers you’re looking for.

Summary

What is an IVA

  • Introduced by the Government in 1986 as an alternative to bankruptcy
  • Typically, you need to owe more than £15,000 and have something to offer to your creditors each month
  • Typically you can write-off 50% – 60% of your debt and pay the balance over 5 years (60 months)
  • Interest and charges stop and creditors can’t change their mind
  • Your home is protected but you may be required to release any equity you have
  • Someone enters an IVA in England and Wales every 13 minutes
  • We only recommend organisations that have a track record of getting IVA’s accepted by creditors and don’t charge upfront fees
