Unfortunately your payments are pretty close to the lower threshold which makes an IVA worthwhile, so you do not have a lot of room to wriggle. £2,5k might do it, but I would go in with £3k. Although both IP and creditors will be saving on administration fees over the next few years, there will also be around £500 adding to fees to cover the variation meeting -- so they won't be financially better off, but will see the debt off their books sooner.
Best of luck.
If I was to offer the amount to settle and the creditors rejected, would I be able to offer another amount higher and if they reject each time is it the case of going higher on the settlement orbwould they come back with an amount they would accept?

The thinking is that a F&F should be the best offer you can affordably make. If you keep coming back with more they will know there is more to be had !!
Yes ok I see what you mean.
So if they reject the first offer, go a little higher then if they reject that then leave it there and continue with the Iva.
We really want to end this Iva so here's hoping.
Thank you for your help
There is possibly a fee for the variation charged by your IP (standard is £500) too which creditors may take into account.
