I am in my seventies and self employed. When I filed my tax return including the my state pension. I owed them nearly £2000. I paid almost £1.000in January with the same amount due on July. HMRC said I have to pay this (July's) and 2019/20 on a monthly direct debit which is £230+per month. I sent all this on to Vanguard and they have put my payments to them up from £99.00 per month to £308.00 per month. They have a breakdown of all my expenses, and I am the sole breadeinner. I now find myself struggling yet again. What can I do please. I'm desperate and very worried. Arnie

When did you enter the IVA and for what tax year did you owe the £2000 ?

Speak to Vanguard and ask them to explain the increase.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

I would speak to HMRC and ask them to reconsider the payment terms - see if they can spread them further particularly whilst Covid19 is an issue as well
