Some banks are not forthcoming with business accounts for those in an IVA, but some have manged it. The trick seems to be getting to chat with a business advisor in branch who can over-ride the "computer says no" attitude. I have seen posters here get business accounts with Barclays, after human intervention in branch. but suspect this will be down to the individual managers, rather than the company as a whole.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
