How can a PayPlan self-employed IVA help

A PayPlan Self-Employed IVA is less restrictive than bankruptcy as it allows you CONTINUED CONTROL OVER YOUR BUSINESS  finances, while giving you peace of mind and a more positive financial future.

In short, it’s a clear and straightforward way to clear your debt with regular, affordable payments. A Self-Employed IVA is a legally binding agreement between you and your creditors. It helps you to avoid bankruptcy or liquidation by you taking responsibility for PAYING OFF PART OF YOUR DEBT over a fixed period. At the end of the period (usually around five years) and providing you keep to your agreed repayment schedule, your creditors agree to WRITE OFF THE OUTSTANDING BALANCE of your debt.

In many instances, a Self-Employed IVA can cancel out a significant proportion of an unsecured debt and works to prevent further demands and threats from your creditors.

Before taking on a Self-Employed IVA, you should be aware that failure to maintain your agreed repayment terms may result in your creditors taking steps towards making you bankrupt and reapplying interest and charges. In some cases, creditors may not even approve a Self-Employed IVA.

Starting on a Self-Employed IVA means you will be entered into a public register and your credit rating, and as a consequence your business, could be adversely affected. Your monthly payments may be lower but your repayment period could be extended – this will depend on the percentage of written off debt your creditors are willing to accept.

A PayPlan Self-Employed Individual Voluntary Arrangement can only be offered to UK residents (except Scotland).
