I just applied for a Iva, and forgot I signed up to amazon music with my credit card last month and they’ve took payment today I’m freaking out it will mess the whole things up. My creditors meeting is the 23rd

You should be OK. It is not a king's ransom ... but make sure that other continuing authorities are cancelled.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

Shouldn't cause too much of an issue. If this is a monthly deduction then you need to cancel it now as your Bank will most likely withdraw any credit line and cancel the credit card once they get to know about the impending IVA.

They are one of my lowest creditors I owed £700 but few weeks before I applied for I paid £600 of it. Still freaking out. What do I do let the Creditfix know? Or just leave it

Just leave it ---- they will get the true balance when the card issuer claims. These usually always differ from the figures we give them as we are always working one statement behind.

Really, don't worry about it. If it was raised as a concern (which I very much doubt) you have a reasonable explanation as to why.

Arguably the debt was incurred pre-IVA anyway. I'd be amazed if it presents itself as a problem.

If you signed up to Amazon Music prior to entering the IVA then my point is that, even if it is raised as an issue, the contract was already entered into.
