Hi and welcome to the forum, all I would suggest is that if you can get to as near as the original dividend the better.

Has your IP given you any idea? Is there a reason you need to finish the IVA early?
IVA final payment left the bank on the 26th January 2013...looking forward to a debt free future.

I would guess around £15,000 - but why not get your IP to work out a settlement figure for you based on returning the same dividend originally pledged. Are you struggling to make the payments at present?

If you arent struggling then creditors would expect to see a return of very close to the original planned dividend.

Did your Mum know about the IVA when you started out or did she find out more recently?
Seems to be quite a few people who start an IVA and dont want to tell family(and for good reasons,we are the same),but when family find out all they want to do is help out.

I agree that you need to get as close to the original dividend as possible.

I could never tell my parents - they would probably disown me, they certainly wouldn't help me out!

I will never tell mine, even when it is finished. They just wouldn't understand having never been in debt.
