Frequently Asked Questions
An IVA is a form of insolvency that allows you to write off unsecured debt and is an alternative to bankruptcy. You'll make a single monthly payment based on your affordability which is then divided between the people you owe money to. All interest and fees associated with any debts included within the IVA will be frozen and creditors can’t contact or take any further action against you.
At the end of the IVA term any remaining debts will be written off.

Yes, an IVA will have an impact on your credit rating as it will show on your credit report for six years after it has been approved. However, it’s important to note this is the case for most debt solutions and your credit score will likely already have been affected by being in debt in the first place.
Once your IVA is complete you will be offered a fresh start to begin rebuilding your credit rating.
In most cases entering an IVA won’t affect employment. However, in certain professions, such as accountants and solicitors, having an IVA may mean that you can no longer practice or you may only be able to practice under certain conditions.

At the end of the IVA the remaining debts are written off and you can begin your debt-free future.
When you’re considering entering an IVA, it’s important to be aware of the following:
- If you’re a homeowner you may need to release equity from your home in the final year of your IVA. If this isn’t possible then the length of your IVA may increase by a year.
- Your credit rating will be affected.
