Often the CT for the tax year the IVA starts is included as a debt, but obviously was not here. Did you know you were in arrears when you started the IVA ? They should have been declared at the time.
You will need to discuss this with your IP, although the bailiffs might not desist at this late stage.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
IVA Completed 23rd July 2013 .... C.C. 10th January 2014
