An Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA) is a formal debt solution which allows you to consolidate your debts and pay one low affordable monthly payment to an Insolvency Practitioner (IP). Your Insolvency Practitioner will distribute this payment according to the amounts agreed by the creditors that you owe money to. Your IVA debt will be reduced as you make payments into your plan. You make your payment every month for 60 months (5 years) and at the end of the term all of your debt balances are written off completely.
