Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA): Fees and costs
National Debt Help Limited will only charge fees if an IVA is subsequently approved by your creditors and our fees are only taken from your monthly payments or asset realisations paid into your arrangement. Our fees are detailed in the proposal, however, In most cases, creditors amend the terms of the IVA to reduce the fees we draw. Usually, creditors will either cap the Nominee’s fee, Supervisor fee, and disbursements at £3,650, or alternatively, they will set individual caps on the Nominee’s fee and Supervisor’s fee as detailed below.
In an IVA there are three distinct types of cost charged by the Insolvency Practitioner.
This fee covers the setting up and preparation of your IVA. This includes assessing your current financial situation and your repayment offer to creditors, issuing the Proposal to your creditors, the administration and facilitation of the creditors’ decision process used to consider the IVA, and any negotiations with creditors during this process.
The Nominee’s fee is generally proposed at £2,000, depending on the level work required, however, this is usually reduced by creditors to £1,000 to £1,650.
These fees are charged for the ongoing administration of the IVA which includes collecting and distributing your monthly repayments, dealing with any queries raised by you or your creditors, completing an annual review of your financial circumstances, reporting annually to you and your creditors about the progress of the IVA, and dealing with the closing formalities.
The Supervisor’s fee is proposed as 18% of the contributions paid into the arrangement, however, this is usually reduced to 15% by creditors, or is limited by an overall cap of £1,750.
When additional work is required, outside of the work initially anticipated above, an additional fee may be drawn in respect of that specific work, for example, convening and holding a variation meeting. These additional fees are detailed in the proposal. These fees are generally limited by creditors.
These are costs paid by the IP to third party companies for statutory insurances, statutory registrations, software licence, document portal and postage that are required as part of the arrangement. These may also include payments made for the provision of additional services to provide the best return for your creditors.
Typically the disbursements of the arrangement equate to around £758 per case.
