About the fees
Individual Voluntary Arrangement fees
We will only charge you a fee if your Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA) is proposed and accepted by your lenders.
All fees are paid out of – not in addition to – your regular affordable monthly payments.
Once your IVA has been accepted, the fees you pay will be:
- A nominee’s fee
- Supervisor’s fees
This fee covers our professional costs and charges for arranging your IVA including:
- Preparing your IVA proposal – which sets out the proposed terms of your IVA and provides your ` lenders with a detailed snapshot of your finances
- Organising the creditors’ meeting, in which lenders can request changes to the terms of your IVA
It will typically be between £1000 and £2700 and is often capped to an amount equal to your first 4-6 months’ IVA payments.
The Nominee’s fee will be paid first before any payments are made to your lenders.
The Supervisor’s fees cover the ongoing work involved in running your IVA and is calculated as a percentage of “realisations”: typically it is charged at 15–18% of any money received by the Supervisor and distributed to your lenders, such as your monthly contributions, any assets (e.g. the equity in your property, successful PPI misselling claims) and windfalls (e.g. an inheritance) that you receive during the term of your IVA.
We are also entitled to claim back the cost of certain expenses (such as postage, insurance, etc) incurred directly in connection with the running of your IVA.
The amount of our fees will be clearly set out in your IVA Proposal. They must be approved and may be changed before it is accepted, by your lenders.
|These are the typical total fees charged for an IVA based on a client contribution of £150.00 per month. |
*An Individual Voluntary Arrangement is a formal debt solution that can help you deal with your unaffordable debts. In an IVA your debt repayments are usually lowered to an amount that you can afford to pay each month. In order to help explain how an IVA works, we have included this IVA Example case above.
