An IVA is a forgiveness agreement
with your creditors to repay a proportion of
the amount you owe in full and final settlement.

How much will I have

How long before I can
get an IVA?
Whilst the insolvency legislation
sets out some timescales for parts of the process
to set up an IVA, the overall timing is down
to you. Generally speaking it takes us about
6 weeks from our initial meeting with you to
getting approval for your IVA.
Will my creditors agree
to an IVA?
For your IVA to be approved
a majority, in excess of 75%, in value, of your
creditors who vote on your IVA, is required.
From our years of experience at providing debt
solutions we know what is likely to be acceptable
to creditors. Our success rate at getting IVAs
approved is 97%
