Hi I got my cc last week, how long does it take to show on your credit file that the Iva is no longer active
Thank you

It will take three months for the IVA to clear off the Insolvency Register, but will show as completed there shortly. Once you are off the Register it should be marked as completed on your credit reference agency files, but that is little help as it is still there until the 6th anniversary of the start of the IVA. Have a read here: https://www.iva.co.uk/what-does-an-iva- ... dit-record

Nearly there -- well done !
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
IVA Completed 23rd July 2013 .... C.C. 10th January 2014

Well done!

Be sure to check all three credit reference agencies for the drop off once the time has elapsed as Foggy says above.
