No, you can apply now but take advice from a couple of companies as there may be another solution for you as your debt is not overly large (I appreciate that it is for you).

I agree with Kallis, an IVA will have a very long term effect on your ability to obtain mortgages, etc so worth getting a few opinions on possible other solutions as well.

Best of luck.

An IVA for an £8k debt is like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut and might not be the best solution.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

Do you have any assets? Do you have more than £50 DI a month after all of your bills have been paid?

Sorry to hear this - if you don't own your own house you may be ok but you need to speak to an expert company for further advice.
