FAQs

If you’re struggling with debt, there are a range of solutions available. We can advise you on all of them. 

A debt management plan (DMP) is an informal agreement with your creditors giving you longer to pay back non-priority debts like credit cards, buy now pay later and personal loans.  

An individual voluntary arrangement (IVA) is a legally binding agreement for you to pay back your non-priority debts at a rate you can afford. It usually lasts five or six years. Afterwards, any remaining debt is written off.  

A debt relief order (DRO) may be suitable if you owe £30,000 or less and don’t have much spare income or own anything of value. This limit is increasing to £50,000 on 28 June 2024. A DRO lasts for a year. If your finances don’t improve during that time, your debts are written off.

Bankruptcy deals with debts you can’t pay, if the value of your possessions is less than the amount you owe. 

Debt consolidation involves using a loan to pay off your other debts. If you've got money worries, debt help may be a better option than borrowing more.
