I assume you are in the process of setting up an IVA. If so explain to your IP company about the transactions and it should be fine. There is a difference between someone who gambles themselves into trouble and has a serious problem and someone who tries to gamble their way out of trouble. If you are the latter your IP firm should understand but they may ask you to cancel the memberships of the betting/gambling sites.
my hubby had spent quite a bit of money on credit cards, taken out without my knowledge. He told me about it this time last year. He closed all accounts - and registered so that they would not let him open one for the next two years and went cold turkey to prove to me - and himself it could be done. He also contacted gamblers anon. We contacted cleardebt in May who checked that it had stopped, what steps he'd taken etc to make sure he stayed stops. Honesty is very important and you'd need to include some details in your summary of how you find yourself in this situation now (personal statement) for your IP so they will know anyway. Why wait another 3 months?? Get things sorted now whilst your head is in a positive frame of mind. Good luck.
And in all my time I have only had one client who could not give up the habit and reverted back - hence the IVA failed. I tend to find that once you remove the catalyst which causes the problem, this generally solves the problem at the same time.
