My husband gets overtime some months and nothing for others but he isnt in the Iva. Please can someone explain...many thanks
The solvent partner's income should only be used at the start of the arrangement to ascertain their fair and proportional share of the household expenses. They are quite within their rights to withold this information, in which case the IP will assume a 50/50 split. After that his fanances are entirely his own business. Overtime fluctuates and cannot be guaranteed so will not affect his "share" of expenses in the long term.
Your partners income has nothing to do with your IVA EXCEPT when some firms will ask for details when calculating the household income and calculating your share of expenditure and surplus available for contributions into the IVA.

Should your partner earn more than you, would it therefore be pragmatic to withhold their income information from advisors/IP?
If there is a large difference, yes. But, of course, the income you declare (as the IVA applicant) would have to be realistic and able to support the IVA.
