Not an easy question to answer as every case has it's own conditions. The simple answer is, I suppose, what can you comfortably live on without struggling?

Hi
I understand that it is between £150 and £195 per month depending on your circumstances, hope this helps

Thank you for your replies.
Another question in that all things such as petrol, food, utilities bills, council tax, car insurance etc have all gone up in the last year by around 9% with petrol going up as much as 36% since Jan 2009!!! This will all be going up again in the coming year and more as come 1st Janury 2010, VAT incerease to 20%. Where do we stand on that with our IP's?

Hi
You just have to list all expenses as they really are and, if asked by your IP to prove petrol costs, show receipts

I would definitely do as Andy suggests and list all your income and expenditure as it is, keeping any receipts maybe if expenditure has increased a lot? I've never personally had to provide receipts but it may depend on your IP. x
IVA final payment left the bank on the 26th January 2013...looking forward to a debt free future.

I've never had to supply receipts either.

I've always put down what we spend and never had a problem getting it accepted.
