IVA Pros and Cons

To get a general idea of how an IVA works and what it might mean for you, it is useful to read the advantages and disadvantages associated with being in an IVA. So, you can decide if an IVA is the right option for you.

IVA Advantages

The benefits of an IVA can be quite compelling, especially if you have problems with debt:

  • You only must pay an agreed percentage of your debt back. You will still be paying part of your debt back with an IVA which must be a higher amount than the creditors are likely to receive in Bankruptcy.
  • You will be free of debt in a set time. In an agreed number of years, you will be debt free and able to get on with your life.
  • Your creditors will stop calling. Once enough of your creditors agree to it at least 75% in value of the creditors that vote must do so an IVA is legally binding. That means they cannot take any further legal action or contact you to demand payment.
  • You won’t have to sell your home. However, you could be expected to re-mortgage and free up some equity for your unsecured creditors our adviser can explain this in more detail.
  • It’s affordable. Your monthly IVA repayments will depend on your specific income and outgoings, meaning it will be an amount you can afford each month.
  • The contractual interest and charges on your unsecured debt will be frozen, so you can get on with making payments.
  • There is always someone on your side. You will receive support from the insolvency practice, meaning you always have someone to discuss any concerns with.

IVA Disadvantages

If you’re considering an IVA then it’s important you take everything into consideration, including the small print.

  • A high proportion of IVAs proposed are accepted however your creditors do have to agree to an IVA, therefore we can’t guarantee it.
  • An IVA is a formal arrangement, so you do need to comply with the terms for it to work. The monthly payments will be affordable and sustainable but are likely to mean quite a tight budget while the debt is repaid.
  • It will affect your credit score. IVAs remain on your credit file for six years from the date your creditor agrees to it or until your IVA is finished, if it lasts longer than six years meaning that even if you complete it within five years, it will show up on your record for another 12 months.
  • Your IVA will be listed on the Individual Insolvency Service register.
  • You will pay fees to the IVA company, although they will often be factored into your affordable monthly payments.
