Hi - there have been indications that this is possible but only the FCA can tell you.

When choosing an IVA company, make sure that they are used to and understand what it means where you get income out of a limited company.

The larger companies will promise the earth, but the reality is they barely understand at times how to run a simple IVA.

There is an IP who comments every now and then on the board and they may be worth contacting.
IVA started March 2011, Completed March 2016 and certificate issued 11 days after final payment. It was not always easy but then some of the best decisions aren't.

You have to check this out yourself, either with the FCA directly or your company accountant.

No IP will give you this kind of definitive advice: even if they think they know, they will tell you that you must check for yourself.

PS. Whilst talking to your accountant you should also discuss the effect of an IVA on your status as a director. This is usually remedied by a simple shareholder resolution but it does depend on your company's articles of association.
