These terms and conditions ("Terms") apply to all and any use of the Website.

IVA Calculator

The IVA Calculator provides examples for illustration purposes only and demonstrates what may be possible with an IVA in relation to a person's level of debt and the minimum monthly payment creditors may be willing to consider for an IVA to be a viable debt solution. Payments into an IVA will typically be set to the level of affordability for each individual.

Please bear in mind that in most cases of an IVA/PTD that creditors will be prepared to write off no more than 70% of a debt and in some cases 60%. And, that not everyone will be able to achieve the stated write off.

The 'savings' or monthly payment reductions to be made by rescheduling debts is dependent on creditors. Creditors are not obliged to agree to a debt management plan, or freeze interest and charges. Please note that rescheduling debts will usually lead to:

  • An increase in the total sum to be repaid
  • An extended repayment period
  • Impairment of the consumers credit rating

The calculator does not claim or imply that it is 'guaranteed'. Nor does it claim that creditors will 'write off' a given percentage of a consumer's debt under an IVA/PTD without clarifying the conditions that need to be adhered to.

It is not all encompassing, nor is it definitive as it does not take into account individuals' varying circumstances. It does not guarantee IVA payments for any particular debt level, or take into account the introduction of equity which may be required. A full assessment will need to be undertaken by a qualified adviser to understand an applicant's circumstances. Using the information provided, the adviser will then explain the options for the applicant's consideration.

Help with Debt Consolidation accept no liability for any reliance placed on the results provided by the IVA Calculator. Should you choose to rely on the information provided without seeking further advice then this is done so entirely at your own risk.
