How much does an IVA cost?

If you decide an IVA is the best option, we will put together a proposal to your creditors free of charge, and complete details of all costs will be included in your IVA proposal.

*Please note all Insolvency Practitioners have costs and fees for administering IVAs. Still, as one of the UK’s leading providers, we promise excellent service, and we will ensure everything from considerations to fees are explained clearly and adequately. Money Advice usually proposes a fixed IVA fee agreed by your creditors and is usually spread evenly throughout the term of the IVA, for the work carried out by a licensed Insolvency Practitioner.  However, you will not be responsible for paying this fee.
