The main debt solutions include:

  • Bankruptcy
  • Debt Relief Orders (DRO)

  • Debt Payment Plan (Scotland only)

Money Advice specialises in IVAs.

This is one of the questions we get asked the most, so we have lots of information on how an IVA works and what to expect.

Essentially, IVA is a statutory scheme as an alternative to bankruptcy that was introduced by the UK Government in 1986 to help people get on top of their finances and reduce unmanageable debts. IVAs involve you only paying what you can afford monthly towards your debts, whilst your creditors also agree to write off a portion. This solution lasts five years but provides a solution for many consumers who would prefer an alternative to Bankruptcy or Debt Management Plans.
