IVA Fees:

An IVA can only be prepared for you by a qualified licensed insolvency practitioner, so there are inevitable professional fees. Fees are paid for from your monthly contributions to creditors, so you do not need to make any other payments besides your monthly IVA contributions, however savings or other assets of high value will need to be realised along with a review of your assests in an agreement of what will be included and what wont be included.

Your insolvency practitioner will keep your IVA costs low by collecting much of the required information from you and by using their tailor-made automated procedures and specialist administrators to process cases.

They earn their fees, like other IVA companies, in two ways:

1. The nominee fee (the fee for putting together the proposal and presenting it to your creditors) for a simple IVA is a fixed fee and will be laid out in your IVA proposal document. If you are a sole trader, partner in a business or have complicated affairs our fees may occasionally be higher – but your insolvency practitioner will explain the reasons why they are higher than the standard fees – this still will not alter the payment you make.

2.Supervisor fee: (the ongoing fee for managing your plan and liaising with your creditors) This fee will depend on your debt level and circumstances but your insolvency practitioner will always lay out these fees in your IVA proposal document so that you are aware of all fees ahead of entering your IVA.

Trust Deed Fees:

The fees are case dependent and also depend on how much you can pay your creditors each month. Your Insolvency Practitioner will charge a fee to administer and manage your case. This fee will be deducted from your monthly contribution before it is disbursed, meaning no additional payments will be required.

DAS Fees:

Applying for a DAS is free and can be done via your local Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB). Fee-charging organisations can also help you set-up a DAS and offer monthly management of your scheme, which often involves a set-up fee to administer your DAS, followed by a monthly management fee.
