If your IP asks for bank statements, then you have to give them.

One of those things I'm afraid.

Probably best just to send them and carry on as Jan says one of those things x
IVA final payment left the bank on the 26th January 2013...looking forward to a debt free future.

Is there going to be a problem handing over the bank statements?

Look at it from their point of view, payslips on their own don't show your income & expenditure. I can't see why you don't want to send them?

If you mean you can have savings prior to entering an IVA and not hand them over I 'think' this is incorrect. You will have to hand them over. I mean, you are expecting creditors to write off a chunk of debt so I think it is only fair. Having your cake and eating it and all that.

If you mean you can squirrel some cash away for emergencies while in your IVA then this is correct. But what happens if you manage to save a few hundred quid?

I really don't see what the problem is with handing over the bank statements. When you're in an IVA you have a duty to co-operate with your IP.

In answer to Imhotep, if you have savings prior to entering an IVA you must declare them to the IP and they will be paid into the IVA. If you can make savings from your allowances or your share of any overtime then it's yours to keep.

It is an excellent phrase!

In answer to Imhotep - you can save as much as you like during an IVA. If this amounts to a few hundred quid, then great! You won't have to hand it over.
