Most banks will offer a basic account. Many people in an IVA use the Co-Operative Bank Cashminder Account. Ones to avoid are HSBC and First Direct, who tend to close accounts when an IVA surfaces.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

Agree with Foggy - try the Co-op but it has to be on the phone or in branch.
