I am considering an IVA however I am self employed as a mortgage/protection adviser and am not sure If I can continue to work in this industry?
My income is so up and down, I understand an IVA is a fixed payment, is there a general rule of thumb in working out how much a monthly pamment might be on my outstanding debts ? then I will be able to work out if I can manage an IVA.
Currently I am just stopping my cards going to default but some of the card issuers are more understanding than others, I see either a IVA or bankruptcy an option.
Thank you for your help.
Not sure about the answer to your question but I think BR will have more of a negative effect on your career than an IVA will but one of the experts will be along to help.
I would give one or two IPs a ring - visit www.iva.com for a list of companies and reviews. The advice is free and impartial.

Try to work out your average net income from future projections and then deduct your living costs, the difference is called your disposable income and this will be your paymnt level into an IVA.
