I have read loads of blogs which make reference to offering 25p in the pound, 56p in the pound and the like.
What does this mean ?? Probably a really obvious question which I could guess at the answer, but I would rather know the truth.

Thank you ....

It means that that is the return your creditors will get, so for every pound you owe them, they will receive 25p, 56p etc.

Hello Mark.by,

As kallis3 mentions it's the return your creditors get.

It's worked out by subtracting the fees and costs of your IP from the contributions you have made to the IVA. The remaining funds will dsitributed amongst your creditors.
