Is there an IVA Charity?
My IVA Adviser is proud to offer a No IVA = No Fee policy, although we are not an IVA charity.
Most enquiries we receive relating to Charity IVAs stem from a misconception that Charity IVAs are free, or the IVA fees will be paid by a charity.
Some people believe that it's possible to apply for a 'Charity IVA', or apply for an IVA through an IVA Charity, but this simply in not true.
All IVAs Have Fees
Under UK law, an IVA can only be administered by a licensed Insolvency Practitioner and all Insolvency Practitioners charge fees for the work they do.
As a result, all IVA's have fees. But the IVA's fees are paid for by the creditors, because they allow the Insolvency Practitioner to draw the fees from the money the IVA applicant pays back.
Debt help charities
There are some charity organisations that offer free debt help, but these debt charities will refer IVA cases to their insolvency practices, set up specifically to administrate their IVAs and they, too, charge IVA fees, just the same as all insolvency practices do.
So the issue over IVA fees shouldn't be the deciding factor when choosing a representative for your IVA application.
Indeed, primary consideration should be focused on whether you are comfortable with the advice you're receiving and whether your adviser is supporting you through the application process.
No upfront fees
You should also make sure the company you use operates a No IVA = No Fee policy.
My IVA Adviser is proud to operate a No IVA = No Fee policy which guarantees that you'll not face any IVA charges in the event that your IVA application is rejected by creditors.
