Companies have to keep records by law. They will keep them for as long as the account is operating plus at least 6 or 7 years after the account ceases, which, in an IVA, is when the IVA completes.

No they didn't -- it has always been the case, since PPI, reared it's head that the refunds belonged to the IVA even after completion. The case came about because a debtor thought differently and the IP defended his position and won.
