A lot of individuals in debt take an IVA or individual voluntary arrangement to be able to facilitate their financial situation by decreasing their total monthly obligations.
In certain cases it might be possible to repay an IVA early. Should you run into cash and have surplus cash flow which you didn’t have when you took out the IVA, it’s crucial that you notify your IVA manager. The IVA manager will analyse the situation and notify the creditors since they need to understand where the money arises from and there is proof it is accessible to settle the IVA.
The procedure encompassing this settlement is referred to as a variant meeting where the IVA manager will call a meeting with all the creditors to put forward a fresh proposal that encircles the new amount of cash obtained for debt repayment. When the creditors accept the new proposal, then there is a time limit where the cash has to be paid, typically approximately 3 weeks. After the creditors have obtained the capital, the IVA will soon be total.
If you’re in debt and also would love to discuss you choices, while it’s an IVA, a debt management program or bankruptcy, you need to talk to a debt adviser shortly.
