HELP regarding last 3 years of my iva
total debt £8326 they are only claiming £5100
fee's £3650
first year i was paying £85.00 =£935
second year payments went up to £385 = £4620
total £5555 paid
Meaning there is £3194 left to pay over 3 years but if i carry on with payments of £385 that will be paying far to much i'm confused
and if i was to offer a full and final payment what would you say i should offer

They are claiming £5100 far. Other claims might yet be lodged.

During an IVA you owe the balance of the full original debt, plus fees and possible statutory interest ... not just the scheduled payments. So, with the figures you have given, with two years interest, that figure would be around £13k less the £5550 paid, so £7450 left to pay. At you present repayment level that would take another 19 months, plus a few to cover the further interest accrued during that time --- for the hell of it, say you will hit that full repayment figure in around 2 more years, so the IVA would end a year early.

If you want to pay it off now, with a full and final offer, this would be based on remaining payments --- so 36 x 385 = £13,860. But, of course, this would take you well over the anticipated full repayment figure --- SO .... you need to base your offer on that, which is £7450.

You are saving them 2 years of costly messing about, (2, instead of 3, because you will finish early anyway, all things being equal.) so most people would reduce an offer slightly to reflect this saving, as well as the 'bird in the hand' factor. Most IVA providers would probably entertain an offer of around £6k to put to creditors. If you are with Creditfix they are likely to push for more.

Does that all make sense ? Sort of ??
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
IVA Completed 23rd July 2013 .... C.C. 10th January 2014
