An IVA is an agreement between yourself and your creditors. It will allow you to reduce your monthly repayments so they are more manageable. In many cases it is also possible to freeze interest and charges, so that you can pay off more of your debt faster. At the end of the IVA term your remaining debts will be written off and you will be debt free.. Do you qualify for an IVA? Take a free IVA debt assessment by clicking here or call: 0800 074 6918
