Hi there Rob and welcome to the forum

IVAs were originally introduced with the self-employed client in mind, so yes they most definately can have them subject to fulfilling the acceptance critieria.

Not all IPs are comfortable acting for self-employed clients, so do your research carefully and ask them about success rates - not just at creditors meeting stage but also in terms of sustainability and returning dividends to creditors.

Hi rob, choose your IP carefully and if I'm right I do believe you need a face to face meeting. Have you chosen and IP? if not why not take a look at for a list of companies and some reviews, also our professionals who post on forum come highly recommended.

You're right Lesley, you do have to have a face to face meeting. We have some good professionals who post on the forum, you could give some of them a try.
