It's a round trip of 70miles a day so the fuel money is going to stop me keeping up with payments. I owe £1650 in payments could I offer £2000 to end the iva?
To be honest 10 months left, you would be cutting it fine -- considering that, depending on who you are with, it could take between 2 and 6 months to get the variation agreed. If you can get your hands on a lump sum, could the donor just assist with ongoing payments for the next 10 months ? In the long run it would cost them less and you wouldn't be losing anything.
It's worth you explaining you are struggling to meet the payments.
As regards a full and final the more attractive the more likely to be accepted but I wouldn't suggest you offer more than what you would pay if it continued, if anything often F&F's are less due to the savings in administration costs and benefits to ending earlier but you only have 10 payments left so if you are going to make an F&F you need to move quickly for it to be worthwhile as it will take c6 weeks (if the IP does their job in accordance with regulations) to get the creditors decision.
