Debt Management Plans (DMPs)

What is a Debt Management Plan?

A Debt Management Plan, or DMP, is an informal arrangement whereby you agree to pay back your debts but at a reduced amount. You can either set up a plan with your creditors directly or use a debt management company to help deal with your creditors on your behalf. In a PayPlan DMP you make one monthly payment based on what you can afford and this amount will be divided amongst your creditors, ensuring all of your debts are being paid.

Is a debt management plan right for me? 

A debt management plan is an informal agreement between you and your creditors whereby you agree to repay your debt in reduced payments that are more affordable for you.

It could be the right solution for you if you have more than £4,500 in unsecured debts and if you are struggling to make the repayments. All debt will be repaid and there is no obligation to release equitable interest or other assets to your creditors.

It might not be the right solution for you if you have a higher amount of debt as depending on how much you can afford each month, it could take you a lot longer to repay back your debts. When you call PayPlan we will advise you of all the available options so you can see whether there is an alternative option that will get you out of debt quicker.  

If you are unsure of what is the best option for you, contact PayPlan to discuss your options with our friendly team.

Why choose a PayPlan DMP?

PayPlan don’t charge their customers anything for their DMP services because we believe every penny you pay should go towards your debts. With lots of fee charging companies closing down, we have created an online DMP calculator so you can see how much money you could save if you opted for a free debt management plan.

Simply move the sliders to show the percentage you pay to your current debt management company and to show how much you currently pay into your DMP. Our debt management plan calculator will use these figures to work out how much more money you could be repaying towards your debts.

How about the ‘small print’?

We always ensure our clients are aware of, and understand, all aspects of the debt solutions we advise on. So before committing to a Debt Management Plan, you should be aware that failure to keep to your agreed repayment terms will result in your plan being cancelled. If you fail to meet your payments your creditors might also look to take legal action against you to ensure they get some form of repayment from you.

By entering into a DMP your regular repayments may be lower, however your repayment period could be longer and the total amount payable higher. This is why when you contact us we will always look at a range of solutions – we want you to get out of debt as soon as you can so you can start enjoying your life again.

Like the majority of debt solutions, entering into a Debt Management Plan will affect your credit rating. A DMP is not a formal agreement so creditors do not have to accept the proposal and they can continue to register defaults until you have repaid all your debt. With some debt solutions, your credit rating will only be affected for a period of time. However with a DMP your credit rating could be affected for 6 years from the date of the last Default Notice issued against you, which your creditors can issue at any point during the plan.

PayPlan Debt Management Plan reviews

We rate 4.8 out of 5 based on 19 reviews


After first contacting National Debtline, my case was taken up by PayPlan. At each stage I was treated sympathetically with each solution explained clearly. With my DMP, PayPlan have helped set up a budget to repay my creditors. They have taken away the worry of contacting each creditor in turn. PayPlan send regular e-mails with different money saving tips etc. It will take time but I am determined to see this through with the help of PayPlan.


Staff are extremely helpful and considerate and are prepared to listen not judge


excellent lots of support throughout, only problem was companys adding interest so plan is taking longer.
