I am in a iva and I only have a year and half left of my 5 year IVA I am self employed and I send in my bank statements with my wages on I get each month. My wages has never goner up in 3 years but my IVA company are saying my wages have double when they complete there expenses form so there for I need to pay an extra £100 a month. I won't be able to afford this as after I receive my wages I have no money left over I live off my tax credits of £66 a week and that has gone down from £89 to £66.
So how can my IVA say my wages has double from last year??

They shouldn't, if they haven't ! Ask them to explain, in detail and in writing, their calculations so you can challenge them.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

Are you sure they are saying your wages have doubled?

Are they perhaps saying your expenses have reduced and your surplus income available for contributions has doubled?

You need to get clarification and challenge anything that has been incorrectly calculated.

Challenge them Claire, demand you speak with your IP not just one of the desk jockies. You can't be expected to live off nothing.
