So was mine, Merlin, but a recent court case has changed all that. As the full council tax is due and payable at the beginning of April each year --- payments spread over 10 months is only a facility granted at the council's discretion ---- the courts have deemed it a debt to be included in the IVA. I am not sure that all IP's are doing this and, personally, do not agree with the ruling, though I can see the reasoning. I have heard that some councils are denying the 10 month options going forward in some cases following an IVA write off but have no personal experience of this.
