We have had a few instances recently where members have 'discovered' that they had completed their IVAs accidentally ---- not realising the fabled Certificate of Completion had been sent to them.
We hear 'Certificate of Completion' and expect an impressive, frameable, parchment announcing our success. What we actually get is a paragraph on a non-descript piece of paper, just saying something along these lines:
I, xxxxxxx of xxxxxxxxx, Chartered Accountant, the Supervisor of the aforementioned voluntary arrangements give notice pursuant to Rule 5.34(2) of the Insolvency Rules 1986 that my duties are complete and that the arrangements have been fully implemented.
Dated this xxxxxxxx
IP's also sometimes call it a Notice of Completion, or Certificate / Notice of Compliance and variations thereof.
It is usually accompanied by final accounts (who has been paid what and what fees have been drawn etc.) and could easily be overlooked in the wad of paper.
So --- if you are waiting for a certificate (and remember it could take up to 6 months to materialise ) do check everything your IP sends post that last payment for that all important but totally unimpressive paragraph !!!
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
