The Debt Write-Off Solution For Self-Employed People

With a Self-Employed IVA, you could be debt-free in as little as 5 years, and carry on running your business. A significant amount of your business and personal debt can be written-off, and you repay the rest in manageable monthly payments – with no more adding of interest, no more legal action threats, and no more chasing from your creditors.

The other advantages of a Self-Employed IVA are:

  • Continue using essential trade suppliers and lines of credit
  • Keep any tools, machinery and stock you need for your business
  • Structure your debt repayments to fit in with your cash-flow

In a Self-Employed IVA, you will need to keep to a budget, but your business and personal debts will all be taken care of – and you’ll still have enough money left over to run your home and business, buy clothes and food for you and your family, and keep up to date with all your essential outgoings.

How can a self-employed IVA help you?

A 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 of time. 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 unsecured debt.

In many instances, a Self-Employed IVA can cancel out a significant proportion of 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 IVA failing and your creditors could then take 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 onto a public register and your credit rating, and as a consequence your business, could be adversely affected. Your IVA monthly payments may be lower than your contractual payments but due to this reduction your creditors may request that your repayment period be extended.

A PayPlan Bespoke Self-Employed IVA  can only be offered to UK residents (except Scotland).

I went into an IVA after not being able to cope with the ever growing financial problems. I went to Payplan as there were no fees involved for myself. I think in the first place I was wrongly advised on two accounts, firstly to sell my house to pay off some debts, and secondly as my wife was involved in three of the debts, not to have transferred these into my name so that we didn’t have two IVAs running and no house. Since then there have been no issues with the IVA until last November when we offered a settlement figure. Although this was accepted it has so far taken 7 months to complete and still no completion letter. Also I was not told that even if you pay off the IVA early, it still stays on your credit file for the full term making it difficult to get anything that would involve a company viewing your file. All in all I have been pleased with the setting up of the IVA but not happy with the advise and the time to wrap up the IVA once concluded
